Attorney General discusses importance of the Constitution

Students at Arkansas State University got the opportunity to listen to the Arkansas Attorney General talk about the U.S. Constitution.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said he feels what he discussed on Thursday is an important topic for our future leaders.

“It's why we enjoy the freedoms that we have.  It's also a source of our great many controversies,” McDaniel said. “But it's up to the next generation to understand where their freedoms come from, how they're protected and how it is that they have a responsibility to be good citizens.”

McDaniel said he hopes the one thing students take away from today is to be involved, exercise your freedoms and speak up when those freedoms are being violated.

“Exercise your freedoms and when you see your freedoms or your liberties being encroched upon in some way, speak up.  Because the Constitution uniquely gives Americans that right,” McDaniel said.

The event was held on the third floor of the student union and about 60 people attended.
