15. and pick handles

and I was in 4th grade in Wyoming, so what does that have to do with me? When I was in South Carolina, most of gun owners I knew were also African American.
Gun control also has an ugly history in the south, that is why until the 1960s, it had stricter laws than most of the US outside of New York. Some of them have since been repealed. Do you think the NAACP supported South Carolina's 1902-1965 handgun ban? North Carolina's licencing? Texas required a licience for handguns 100 years ago. Look up Texas v Miller 1894.
Florida banned open carry in 1893 because the sight of black migrant workers "toting" scared the shit out of white people.

Canada's 1934 handgun law was all about fear of immigrants, nothing about "civil society".
Oh yeah, Maddox is fucking dead. The south of that time period is on life support, if not dead. Much of Florida is Long Island south.
