He May Be the First Person Charged Under Conn. Gun Registration Law — But That’s Not Even the Most Disturbing Part of This Story

Police arrested a 65-year-old man in Milford, Conn., after he allegedly got a squirrel in his yard on Monday. Upon further investigation, officers recovered an unregistered “assault rifle” and three “large-capacity magazines.”

Now James Toigo faces a plethora of gun-related charges, including unlawful discharge of a firearm, cruelty to an animal, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree breach of peace, failure to register an assault rifle and three counts of possessing large-capacity magazines.

Under Connecticut’s hastily-passed gun control law, gun owners are required to register their so-called “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines with the state or face a class D felony. Many have argued the law is unconstitutional because gun owners who previously purchased firearms and magazines legally can be retroactively turned into criminals.

Police officers reportedly heard a gunshot nearby while they were directing traffic in the area. Authorities reportedly determined that Toigo shot the squirrel.

  1. He should claim self defense on the squirrel attack, and 2nd amendment for all the rest, and every gun owning, law abiding, red blooded American should contribute to his defense fund, starting now.

  2. James
