Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-As previously reported that Steffon Josey-Davis, a young black man aspiring to be a cop in New Jersey, was pulled over for a routine traffic violation in 2013 and thereafter charged with a second-degree felony for a having a legally owned gun in his glove compartment.

Davis told the policeman the gun was in the compartment when he was pulled over, and the officer took the gun without any mention of charges. Davis was an armed guard for Loomis at the time. Yet because the gun was still loaded in the glove compartment, he was later given the option of five to 10 years in prison or a plea deal for a second degree felony.

He took the plea deal, which destroyed his dreams of being a police officer.

Fast forward to 2015. Upon advice from others Davis reached out the NAACP for help, hoping to get the felony expunged from his record so he can put his life back together again.

But the NAACP was not interested in helping.

Davis told Fox News, “I went to the NAACP but they refused to help me. They say ‘black lives matter,’ but obviously they…[all] don’t because I didn’t fit their agenda.”

Fox News’ Steve Ducey asked, “What do you mean by ‘didn’t fit their agenda’?”

Davis responded, “Basically, like, I’m not getting shot by a police officer so they’re not going to come out and defend me.”

Davis added: “I’m out here doing better for myself, and trying to provide for my family, and my life matters too.

Ducey pointed out that Davis’ “last line” — his last chance — for changing things now is a direct appeal to Gov. Chris Christie (R) for pardon. Davis said he is already in the process of seeking that pardon and has a GoFundMe campaign opened to fund those efforts.

    So he was WILLFULLY negotiated to a misdemeanor knowing full well the issue rather then defending his supposed rights? NOW he wants to expunge it? Should every one who goes to jail or is convicted or negotiates a sentence be given the right to simply wipe it away? If you do the crime then you do the time. If he had a CCW would he have been allowed to have the gun in the car with him in that state? If there is no option to obtain a CCW then the weapon needs to be placed in the trunk right?… Read more »

    We will see how YOU decide when YOU are looking down the barrel of a multiple year prison term. I would think with the threat of the state rolling over him he made the smart call. The cop haters can’t blame the officer here, it’s just a case of draconian gun laws destroying lives and careers.

    When you live in a sewer you attract sewer rats. NJ is nothing but a cesspool and many good lives have been ruined by their commie gun laws. he NAACP is is the clan with a tan. Hope he gets a pardon then moves to somewhere in America where rights are still respected.

    Black lives only matter when they keep voting for their slave masters and the policies produced by their owners.
    If you do not toe the line you are a uncle tom or an oreo not even to be considered worth an effort.
    Some of these black people need to look in our direction. Conservative.

    There is no doubt Steffon was right, but why is it every time a black person gets into trouble they always throw in the race card?

    Why in the hell did he take that plea ? Instead of the useless NAACP he should had hired a damn good attorney.
