Today, you can start registering your assault weapons. Also today, there's a limit on the ammunition in magazines, to 7 bullets. You'll have a year to register or sell your weapons. State officials say weapons that didn't use to be listed as assault weapons could be now-- so you need to check to see the status of your gun.

The state affiliate of the National Rifle Assocation plans to go to court today to try to block the magazine limit; but they have asked all gun owners across the state to comply with the law until quote "it's proven unconstitutional."
