AGO 1951 NO. 424 > Jan 11 1951

Notwithstanding the licensing authority being changed from the Director of Licenses to others enumerated in the statute, chapter 72, Laws of 1935, does not repeal chapter 52, Laws of 1911, requiring as a prerequisite that an alien, before being licensed to possess or carry any firearm, must present a certificate of the consul of the country from which he came that he is a responsible person.
