The 2nd Amendment Made Me Do It
The 1st and 2nd Amendments have always been under attack, and they always will be. That should give you a good indication as to how important they both are. Every individual is free to do good, or to do ill. Everyone has a choice to lie or commit criminal acts of violence. Thus, the freedom to speak the truth (1st Amendment) and to defend oneself against criminality (2nd Amendment) are paramount.
