NAACP Urges National Gun Confiscation


NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson called for a national gun confiscation program in a syndicated column through Black Press USA on Monday.

Comparing recent school shootings to the violence and discrimination black students faced after the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Johnson wrote that “fear and terror still exist in our children’s classrooms” because of the “National Rifle Association and the politicians [sic] that support them.”

    Mr. Johnson needs to look at the problems of the inner city. Most deaths of 15 to 19 year old’s in the inner city are black on black crime. Why doesn’t Mr. Johnson, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson concern themselves with education and jobs in the inner city; instead of attacking honest, God fearing, American citizens and our 2nd amendment rights. Simply put, the 2nd amendment exists to protect the first and the other amendments for our country. Try and TAKE MY GUNS Mr Johnson!!!!!!!!!!!

      Sharpton and Jackson have made themselves wealthy telling the black man what the white man has done to them and fixing nothing!

    Come on Tennessee Star…if he called for gun confiscation, please give us the quote. If you’re referring to the thing about Austrailia, that doesn’t cut it. I’m sure he supports confiscation, just like most liberals do but the article’s title gives you a click-baitie appearance if you simply refer to the same “common sense” measures all the other liberals are out there calling for.

    If black Americans want to give up their guns it’s their prerogative, but it not mine. Good luck with that DJ.

    One more point. The NRA was founded in 1871 and the NAACP was founded in 1909. So technically, the NRA is the nation’s oldest civil rights organization.

    Ben Carlson beware, this Mr. Johnson sounds like a real “brain surgeon!” Of course 80% of gun deaths are homicides, guns don’t operate autonomously. Would he feel better if all of those deaths within Chicago’s inner city were perpetrated using a machete? Will his next press release denounce the killing of so many African American males ages 15 to 19 WEEKS old? Or, will he suggest conficating all those terrible cigarettes, that lead to the deaths of so many?

    The NAACP is a sham!

    Or, you could enforce the existing laws about using a firearm in the commission of a felony to its fullest extent. Which disproportionately impacts people of Johnson’s preferred hue so its easier for him to deny others who have commited no crime of their civil rights.

    Look at South Africa today for Johnson’s vision for tomorrow.

    Hitler first took their guns!
    Ban or confiscate all guns and the criminal will still get guns creating a very profitable black market. The US has been unable to stop drugs entering the country. What makes any one believe guns could be stopped.

    What this clown is calling for is pure communism.
