New York Time best-selling author Brad Thor thinks the shooting in Garland, Texas, that left two Muslim extremists dead serves as a reminder of why we have constitutional protections.
Thor — a noted conservative novelist — echoed the sentiments patriots have been espousing for years: That the First and Second amendments are dependent on each other.
“The #GarlandAttack is a reminder of why we have both a 1st and a 2nd Amendment…,” he tweeted.
Many in the Twitterverse applauded Thor’s statement, including one who said “It reinforces why our founding fathers thought to put those very two first with one right behind the other!”

@BradThor There's a reason why my favorite 2 amendments come first. They should have done their homework.

@BradThor It reinforces why our founding fathers thought to put those very two first with one right behind the other!

@BradThor 1st amendment to 2nd: "Thanks for having my 6". 2nd replies: "That's why I'm here".

@BradThor Sad that it seems in USA today the 2nd Amendment to US Constitution is only thing protecting the 1st Amendment & all the rest.
