January 2013 America's First Freedom

Found my article online, here.  This article explains the history of California's first gun control law (a ban on carrying concealed deadly weapons): why it was passed in 1863 -- and why even supporters of it agreed that it needed to be repealed in 1870.

UPDATE: For those interested in the statutory history: here is the bill that criminalized concealed carry in 1863; here is the bill repealing it in 1870. Here is the article I quoted about searching men entering an entertainment hall.
