All Jackson county dealers in revolvers and side arms must comply with the state law governing sales of such weapons and make daily reports to Sheriff Jennings of any such sales. The state authorities plan to strictly enforce this carrying concealed weapons law from now on.

Sheriff Ralph Jennings received Thursday a communication from A. W. Lawrence, state printer, calling attention to the law and stating that "every dealer in the business of selling or displaying of revolvers, pistols, or other small arms that can be concealed on the person shall obtain a legal register from the state printer in which to enter the name and description of all person purchasing such weapons." The communication asks the sheriff for a list of all dealers in Jackson county who intend handling small weapons for sale after May 21, and states that daily reports of sales must be made to the sheriff in compliance with the law.
