Excerpt from Report of the Secretary of the Interior for the Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 1884, Vol. 2 of 4
I again call attention to the fact that no law exists to prevent the sale of arms and ammunition to Indians. This office can and does pre vent persons licensed and under bonds as Indian traders from furnish ing either arms or ammunition to Indians; but outside parties furnish both arms and ammunition, because there is no law to punish them for so doing. This practice places the Indians in a semi-independent posi tion to the Government, which has been productive of much trouble, and, in some instances, loss of life. I hope, therefore, that Congress may see the necessity of passing a stringent prohibitory law on this subject, so that the personal liberty of both whites and Indians may be interfered with in this particular.
