The Southern Christian Leadership Conference Wednesday suspended the president of its Georgia chapter, the day after he urged blacks to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms in response to recent police shootings of unarmed blacks.

SCLC National President and CEO Dr. Charles Steele made the announcement at a news conference.

The action comes after Georgia SCLC President Sam Mosteller Tuesday called on all African-Americans to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

In a statement, Dr. Steele said, “We have found that his (Reverend Mosteller’s) comments do not represent, not reflect the principles and position of this organization.”

As a result, the national organization announced the indefinite suspension of Rev. Mosteller, ordered an internal investigation, and ordered him to undergo an internal training program.

Tuesday, Rev. Mosteller told reporters he is tired of talking and marching and of inaction at the local and federal level.

He said police and the justice system have failed blacks in cities nationwide.
