Both New York State and Connecticut have already done just that.
Connecticut doesn't even provide a "grace period" or "second chance" for owners of "assault rifles". That is to say, those who own AR-15 type weapons who DID NOT register them during the "registration period" (that ended) last year, are now FELONS in the state of Connecticut. And I doubt more than 10-15% of owners went through the registration process.
Same for New York (although I believe that in NY state, if you are caught with an "unregistered" AR, you still get "a second chance" to register it. NOT SO IN CONNECTICUT.
I believe that in Connecticut, the powers-that-be are slowly "building their lists" by monitoring such things as ammo purchases, etc.
BTW, under the new laws in BOTH CT and NY, I believe the states are tracking ammunitition purchases. I believe buyers must be registered in some way with the state to buy ammo.
Sooner or later, there's going to be "a test", to see what the state can do insofar as rounding up weapons is concerned.
Sinkspur lives in Texas (I believe) and has no idea what conditions for gun owners are like in the Northeast. States like Connecticut, New York and Maryland are working actively to revoke the Second Amendment rights of their residents.
They're only getting started...
