Survey Sunday: Second Amendment

The definition of the Second Amendment is as important to the cultural landscape of the United States as the First Amendment. For many, the precedence of one over the other usually identifies their personal ideologies: Liberals are often outspoken regarding the First Amendment and tend to downplay the Second, and Conservatives tend to weigh in heavily on the Second Amendment and limit the scope of the First.
