Please read the details before jumping into answering.
Key word being “peacefully” here.
First Amendment vs Second Amendment?
Past: Dr. Martin Luther King exercised his freedom of speech and got shot for it.
Present: George Tiller, (the abortion doctor who got shot and killed) by opting to continue doing his work despite a number of threats and other assaults, was exercising a form of freedom of speech because he was making the statement that he is pro-choice
Do you think you would be scared if you became a leader figure (like obama), knowing that anyone* can carry a gun?
If your life was threatened with a gun would you shut up, or say what you think needed to be said?
*(assuming they meet the state and federal guidelines)
