Excerpt from Irish Facts, 1909, Vol. 3

When the Grand Jury at Connaught Assizes concluded their business on December 2, the foreman, Sir Vincent Nash, read the following resolution passed by the Grand Jury: Resolved: That we, the Grand Jury of the City of Limerick at Connaught Winter Assizes, recognising the dangerous facilities afforded the general public of obtaining firearms, particularly revolvers, and realising that these facilities have been the cause of several of the cases which have come before us for consideration, most respectfully suggest that the learned Judge presiding at the Assizes do convey to the proper authorities our unanimous protest against the indiscriminate sale and use of firearms, and our opinion that some restriction should be placed on the sale and carrying of the same. - Dublin Daily Express, December 3.

On this grave question Mr. Justice Gibson, at the Leinster Assizes at Dublin, on December 2, was compelled to comment. He said: Firearms exercise a strange and sometimes irresistible fascina tion and temptation to their possessors, and the free trade in firearms which now prevails is of immense public danger, and should be subjected to legislative restriction. Shooting seems to have become in some parts of the country a matter of lamentable frequency. The mischief is one which urgently demands the attention of Parlia ment. When I was last on the north-west Circuit dealing with party processions where firearms are often carried, I adverted to this gross and growing peril arising from citizens carrying loaded weapons upon their persons without any necessity arising for reasonable self-protection. - Dublin Daily Express, December 3.

Yet Mr. Birrell, who dropped the Peace Preservation Act from the Statute Book, refuses to restrict in any way free trade in firearms. In a light and airy manner he expresses doubts whether the increasing number of shooting outrages is really to be attributed to his foolish deed.
