The deadline to register weapons and ammunition banned under new Connecticut gun legislation is fast approaching.
Assault weapon certificates must be obtained and high-capacity magazines declared by the end of the month. Forms should be received or postmarked by Dec. 31, according to state police.
Owners of assault weapons must show proof of purchase and an affidavit confirming that the weapons were bought before the new gun control laws took effect.
The applications and list of banned weapons are available online at www.ct.gov/despp.
