Liberal actor Danny Glover of the series Lethal Weapon probably wasn’t very popular in the room after delivering this line to a group of students at Texas A&M.

“I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms,” Glover said. “The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans, so 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 also shares his thoughts about global warming, hurricanes, the Occupy movement, and American consumerism.
