..The" burglar, gunman, highwayman

folly it is to think that he will be
deterred by the remote possibility ofi
being caught beforehand by a -police-H
man with a concealed weapon, and, if
so caught, being liable for a misdemeanor!
The ordinary citizen, on the con

aw,' therefore, works out in such
manner as to protect the -law-breaker
and make the law-abiding citizen a
helpless victim. No doubt in Colonial
times the savages of those days (the
hostile Indians) would have welcomed
Mr. Sullivan's law.
Statistics are not at hand, but it
would probably be found that more
gun play and murders in the streets
have taken place since the Sullivan
aw went into effect than ever before.
There must be some interesting
story behind this Sullivan law. Why
was it desired that citizens of Newi
