Danny Glover, lefty actor who pals around with the likes of Hugo Chavez, spoke at Texas A&M recently. His comments on the 2nd Amendment didn't go over very well:
And there are some people out there who agree with Glover's interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. A few of the theories are linked here (although the article refers to "consitutional experts" it then goes on to cite two non-constitutional experts).
We can debate Mr. Glover's version of the intent of the 2nd Amendment later.
Nonetheless, I get why conservatives at A&M aren't too happy with some of the speakers they listed in the video. But isn't a college campus precisely the place to discuss such issues? I'd be a little more reluctant to try and get the university to stop inviting speakers with whom I disagree just because I disagree with them, as nutty and left-wing as they might be.
