Actor Glover Says 2nd Amendment Created To Protect Against Slave Revolts

Guns also needed to protect Americans against Indians, Glover says

Second Amendment Was Created To Protect Slavery and Capture Land from Native Americans, Says Actor Danny Glover (Daily Mail)

Award-winning actor Danny Glover made a bold claim as he spoke to a group of students at Texas A&M University on Thursday: the Constitution's Second Amendment was created to bolster slavery and take land from the Native Americans.

‘I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms,’ said Glover, well known for his roles in the ‘Lethal Weapon’ franchise. ‘The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans,’ he said.

‘A revolt from people who were stolen from their land or revolt from people whose land was stolen from, that’s what the genesis of the Second Amendment is.’
