'No slave shall keep any arms whatever,
nor pass, unless with written orders
from his master or employer, or in his company, with arms from one place to another.

Arms in possession of a slave contrary to this prohibition shall be forfeited
to him who will seize them.'

-A Bill Concerning Slaves, Virginia Assembly, 1779
