" Georgia SCLC president Rev. Samuel Mosteller stopped just short of telling black Americans to arm themselves. But the reverend did call upon them to defend themselves through the 2nd Amendment, or the right to bear arms. He made the statement at a rally Tuesday at Centennial Park. "You know, the SCLC stands for nonviolence," said Rev. Mosteller, "but nonviolence hasn't worked in this instance."" "I am going to have to advocate, at this point, that all African-Americans advocate their 2nd Amendment rights," Rev. Mosteller said.
