Mr. ARTHURS:

I would like to see the clause itself pass, because we did something last year that we did not intend to do. We passed an act whereby it was made unlawful for a man to have in his possession any kind of rifle, pistol, shot-gun or firearm of any kind. It was intended to apply to aliens but the effect has been that any man is now liable to penalty if he has any of these things in his possession. I am desirous that the clause should pass, but I think that the word "ammunition" should not be used as it appears in the clause.
