    The Constitution's Second Amendment was created to bolster slavery and capture land from Native Americans, award winning actor Danny Glover told a group of students at a Texas A&M sponsored event on Thursday.

    Actor Danny Glover told students at Texas A&M University the intent of the Second Amendment was to protect slavery.

    “I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms,” he said. “The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans.”

    “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,” he continued.

    Glover, best known for roles in the “Lethal Weapon” franchise and “Angels in the Outfield,” was addressing students at an event being held in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    Director of Texas A&M’s Memorial Student Center, Luke Altendorf, told Campus Reform on Friday that the university was unaware of Glover’ talking points prior to his speech.

    “I had no idea, we really didn’t know that topic was coming up,” he told Campus Reform. “Someone was asking a question about activism, I think that’s where some of that came from.”

    Altendorf declined to say if, or how much the school had paid for Glover’s speech, but said student fees were not used.

    In the past, however, the university paid Angela Davis and Harry Belafonte $25,000 for their speeches at the same event.

    Altendorf also defended the school’s decision to host those controversial speakers with university resources.

    “We didn’t feel those speakers you are referring to are bad decisions on these topics because we want to foster discussion,” he said.

    The video recording of the event was captured by members of a student group, the Texas Aggie Conservatives (TAC). That group has also created an online petition blasting Texas A&M’s for it’s speaker selections.

    Eric Schroeder, chairman of the conservative group, called the event “outrageous.”

    “It should be a time for real reflection and respect,” he said referring to the memorial breakfast for King. “Instead, the university pushes a political agenda.”

    Schroeder also called on university President Bowen Loftin to make up for the event by inviting a conservative speaker of equal star power.

    “We expect President Loftin to stand by his commitment to diversity and fully support our efforts to bring in a conservative speaker to provide an alternative to Mr. Glover’s far left message” said Schroeder.

    Yep...I hear the sharks in the Atlantic Ocean to this day still swim past Savannah, waiting for the sound of gunshots and the subsequent 'plop' of fresh meat in the water.

    I bet Mel Gibson could find Danny Glover's house and give him a history lesson. I hear Mel has a bad temper.

    Carl Bogus is a super-liberal and Professor of law at Roger Williams University. His position allows him to cherry pick the parts of history that meets his agenda. That article is well written, but by no means the entire story of the second amendment.

    So following Glover's logic, this whole process of Obama gun control is just a means of disarming the non-slaves?

    Racism is dead? Several years ago black comedian Chris Rock used in his act."there ain't nobody more prejucidest than a 50 year old black man" I think he is correct.

    The RACIST Danny Glover says the second amendment was to protect folks from slave uprisings.....well what the hell does he think the street gangs in all of major cities are. Uprisings of the lawless against anyone in their way. And I would ask him what the homicide rate was when slavery was practiced. ed nichols

    Danny Glover was not there. How could he possibly know what the intent was. It is simply his opinion..nothing more unless he has facts to back it up ..and since he is such a history scholar he should be able to answer other questions. Guns are bad but ok if I am making millions using them in a movie or in the hands of street gangs who shoot each other and innocents as long as they are the right demographic. Rapper song lyrics calling for the killing of cops is ok because feedom of speech is guaranteed. ed

    My Aggie buddies with big pockets are in a towering rage over this complete slap in in the face.

    I reminided him that Glover might be greeted with great enthusiasm in Austin.

    Actually the roots of gun control in America go back to the Democrats in the south trying to keep weapons out of the hands of the new'ly freed black slaves to keep them defenceless against the KKK (the terrorist arm of the Democratic party).

    He has the urban-centric "keep all guns away from gangbangers so black on black crime will stop" perspective common to many anti-gun African-Americans......

    It is very easy to externalize the problem and not deal with the endemic problems of urban blacks......

    There is much "cachet"in demonizing the NRA, hunters and gun owners among the Hollywood pseudo-intellectual (deluded narcissist) crowd....

    Danny boy, why don't you talk with Bill Cosby about the TRUE FACTORS involved in the destruction of young black men....

    Quit acting like a blame-shifting, shallow and uninformed Hollywood has been...
