Actually Lee was more into girls than guns. He paid 34x his usual bounty for 14 year old girls, and even bought girls, who were never enslaved before, from bounty hunters who captured FREE blacks in the North, while they were chasing escaped slaves.

Lee continued the practice during the Civil War,he is the only person in US military history to order the capture of free people during war, in enemy territory (the North) to be chained, taken back to his country (CSA) and sold as slaves.

I wonder who got the money? No one knows.
