"the judge decided the law prohibiting unnaturalized foreigners from carrying a firearm is unconstitutional..."
The state game commission will appeal to the higher courts from the decision of Judge Telford, of Indiana county, in which the judge decided the law prohibiting unnaturalized foreigners from carrying firearms is unconstitutional. Decisions have been rendered for and against the constitutionality of the law which went into effect but recently and the game commission is desirous of knowing where it is at and will take an appeal in order that the new law may be finally adjudicated at the earliest possible moment.
