AGO 1957 No. 62 >  May 13, 1957
UNIFORM FIREARMS ACT - ENFORCEABILITY STATUTES - CONSTRUCTION
UNIFORM FIREARMS ACT ‑- ENFORCEABILITY STATUTES ‑- CONSTRUCTION (1) The uniform firearms act is still in force, though its penalty provision has been declared unconstitutional. (2) The provisions of the uniform firearms act authorizing the carrying of a concealed pistol with a license, should be construed together with those of an independent statute prescribing penalties for "furtively carrying with an intent to conceal" such a weapon, in order to preserve the integrity of both statutes.
