Wow! I had no idea Danny Glover is old enough to have participated in the Constitutional Convention of 1789 and was privy to all that the other participants said and wrote and did! Strange, though, that none of the anti-slavery ones mentioned the Second Amendment as an impediment to eventually doing away with slavery. Maybe Mr. Glover could point out those for us.

I’ll bet he picked up this idea from ‘Left’ radio on serius or XM. I was looking for Fox radio last week and got ch127 instead of 125 or 6(?)
Anyway a commentator named Bob Edwards was going on about this book ‘Slave Patrol’ that alleged the south had militias that searched out escaped slaves and Madison and Henry were responsible for the 2nd amend. to made sure these could be continued.
Would be nice to know of a good critique of the book. I picked up on these ‘patrols in the 1750’s and the Cons Conv. was 40 yrs later.
