[WATCH] Actor Danny Glover tells students 2nd 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, 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.

Proof? I don’t need no steenking proof! I am a Hollyweird Actor! What a Race-Card-playing insult to fruitcakes!

If I thought it would do any good, I would suggest pointing Glover at the true origin of the U.S. Bill of Rights (via the Virginia Bill of Rights): The English Bill of Rights, and with it, the history that shows that every article therein was in response to an abuse BY THE GOVERNMENT.

Gun control was first used in the U.S. to keep blacks from owning guns.

Bad history Glover.
