Public Hearings ExpectedPublic hearings are expected on a number of measures now pending in the Legislature. One of the bills for which a demand for a hearing has been made In Senator Daix's measure to restrict the sale of small firearms.
While this bill Is designed solely to prevent the sale of firearms by unscrupulous dealers to irresponsible persons it Is meeting with determined opposition. Attempts during previous sessions to restrict the sale of firearms invariably has met with the same opposition and have always resulted in the defeat of the measures.
How about that! Attempted tyranny and usurpation was shot down![Evening Public Ledger, Philadelphia, Saturday, February 22, 1919, Night Extra, Pg. 3]
