“There would be no First Amendment without the Second Amendment.”

The “people” mentioned in our bill of rights are all the same people. As the old comic strip, Pogo said, “They are us.” The people have a right to a free press just as they have a right to bear arms. “Bear” means carry. “Press” means to print and disseminate. It has been said that freedom of the press extends to those who own presses.

By the same token, the right to bear arms extends to those who own arms. Publishers vigorously defend their rights against those who may disagree with their writings and want to shut down their publication. However, the people will not allow this to happen. The right to publish is equal to the right to know.
