As a result of new legislation passed in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, citizens in Connecticut are required to register with the state any weapons considered assault weapons, as well as any high-capacity magazines (those that hold 10 or more rounds).

News 8 photographer George Roelofson captured this image Monday of gun owners lining up to register before the Jan. 1 deadline.

No one likes a long line, but gun rights advocates were appalled at this one.
