West Hartford-based Colt Manufacturing has announced that it will stop selling its semi-automatic assault-style AR-15 rifle into the civilian market. It will continue making them for the military
and law enforcement markets. Why any civilian thinks they need an assault weapon is beyond me.
Hartford has many places named after Samuel Colt. This is a statue of Colt as a young man
and as an adult. located in Colt Park in the south end of Hartford.
