Petition #11386501


Thirteen citizens of Colleton District represent "that the law respecting negroes and free persons of Colour carrying and using firearms is not punishable except by forfeiture of said arms.” They believe "said punishment too light, and think the law ought to be framed as to make them liable to indictment and punishment on proof that such persons have firearms in their possession whether said arms can be seized or not."
