During a discussion with Texas A&M University students at an event to honor Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., actor Danny Glover said the Second Amendment was written to strengthen the institution of slavery and to help take land away from Native Americans.
“I don’t know if people know the genesis of the right to bear arms. The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect, to protect themselves from slave revolts and from uprisings from 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,” Glover said.
