Today, Texas Aggie Conservatives issued the following press release:

Actor Danny Glover Claims 2nd Amendment Created to Oppress Slaves

Texas Aggie Conservatives Launch Protest Petition

College Station, TX --On Friday January 18, 2013 the student activist group the Texas Aggie Conservatives (TAC) launched an online petition in protest of controversial statements made by actor and political activist Danny Glover. In a video posted on YouTube by the TAC, Glover claimed that the right to bear arms was created to oppress slaves and Native Americans at Texas A&M’s annual Martin Luther King breakfast this past Thursday morning.

“One of those things is when we talk about the 2nd amendment, the right to bear arms, I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms, the second amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprising by Native Americans.” said Glover.

TAC Chairman Eric Schroeder claimed "It's outrageous. It should be a time for real reflection and respect. Instead, the university pushes a political agenda. The university doesn't want its donors to know all this. Donors need to hold the university accountable and withhold contributions."

Schroeder and the TAC have called on the Texas A&M administration to equally distribute funds for conservative speakers.

"Texas A&M spends hundreds of thousands of dollars each year on events that promote only the leftist worldview, and the Aggie Conservatives will not stop exposing this waste and abuse until true fairness and equality is achieved and the university administration returns it's focus to providing a quality education to Texas's future workforce and leaders."

The Texas Aggie Conservatives promote conservative principles and advance the conservative movement at the university, local, state, and national levels in a number of different ways. These include educating students and the public, advocating for conservative fiscal and social policies, campus activism, offering camaraderie for conservative students, and campaigning for conservative political candidates.
