Idiots! The First Amendment is MUCH more important than the Second, in preserving our freedom. The Second Amendment "right" to fight a tyrannical government is meaningless in the age of machine guns, tanks, helicopter gunships, etc. Anybody who decides they need to raise weapons against the US government is annihilated in short order!

This is a common right-wing fantasy, with zero connection to reality. What keeps us a free country is the right to speak up, to have the real news reported, to vote, and to file suit in court when the government does something unconstitutional.

I think this has to reflect poorly on American Education: We used to have something called Civics in American high schools, and everybody had to pass it to graduate.
