Danny Glover: ‘The Second Amendment Was Created to Protect Slavery’

During an event on Thursday to honor Martin Luther King Jr, award winning actor and humanitarian Danny Glover told Texas A&M students  that the danny gloversecond amendment was created 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 is certainly not the first person to make the point that the second amendment was crafted to protect slavery.

    He is wrong. The 2nd amendment was put in place so that people could protect themselves from a government that turnes on them. The 2nd amendment is for everyone.

    His right, it makes sense. However gun ownership works both ways. The last time Blacks were explicitly banned from owning guns, was during the jim crow era. Now think about that.
