Durham County Clerk of Court Shreds Jim Crow Gun Registry

Back in May, we told you about the Durham County gun registry, which was an unconstitutional holdover from the racist Jim Crow Law days, in which the county created a gun registry to keep guns out of the hands of black citizens, based solely on the color of their skin  .
As of yesterday, the Clerk of Court along with the Sheriff's Office has now destroyed the gun registry in accordance with North Carolina law, and more importantly, in accordance with the Constitution and the rights of law abiding citizens.
These photos are from their Facebook page dated yesterday:

 While it's a shame it has taken this long to remove such a violation of Constitutional freedom, it's a greater shame that such a registry was ever created in the first place.
