Clash of The Titans - 1st Amendment vs. 2nd Amendment During Protests

The Clash of the Titans

First Amendment right to free speech or the Second Amendment right to bear arms during protests

Neither the First Amendment right to free speech nor the Second Amendment right to bear arms are absolute rights.

In other words, the government can place certain restrictions on each right. For example, the government can make it a crime if someone incites actions that would harm others, such as falsely yelling “fire” in a crowded theater.

Also, for example, the government can impose restrictions on the sale of guns to, and the possession of guns by, felons.

May a government impose restrictions on either the First Amendment right to free speech or the Second Amendment right to bear arms during protests like we saw this summer after the killing of George Floyd? That’s the main subject of our Facebook Live event.

Will Wearing a BLM Hat at Work Get Me Fired?

You may have read recently that a Taco Bell employee was fired for wearing a “Black Lives Matter” hat to work. “Doesn’t that violate the First Amendment?” you might be asking. The answer is, as usual with the law, “It depends!” Are you working for the government or a private employer?
