But when the American Freedom Defense Initiative offered a prize in for the best cartoon drawing of the Prophet Mohammed, in Garland, Texas, near Dallas, gunmen showed up and opened fire.

The event was billed as a First Amendment event, but the Second Amendment became the focus, as the gunmen were killed by police after they began firing on a security guard, preventing a repeat of a Paris-like massacre.

The First and Second Amendments are critical to our freedom.
