Actor Danny Glover, known for his wacky political statements, has opened his mouth yet again to bash the U.S. Constitution, and gun owners rights. And he even seems to equate gun ownership with racism.
Higher ed watchdog group Campus Reform reports on a talk Glover gave to students this week:
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.
“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… was addressing students at an event being held in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Apparently, Danny Glover thinks that if you support 2nd Amendment rights, you are a racist.
It’s truly hypocritical when a guy who makes millions off movies called “Lethal Weapon” tells students he has a problem with legal gun ownership.
