Joe Wolverton is a lawyer and featured contributor at the New American, a conservative opinion magazine. In the following viewpoint, Wolverton uses comments made by comedian Dave Chappelle as a springboard to discuss the relationship between the First and Second Amendments to the US Constitution. The author expresses support for a statement made by Chapelle during his acceptance of a national humor award that the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First is only possible because of the right to bear arms granted by the Second. Wolverton compares Chappelle's statements to the writings of James Madison and to opinions expressed by constitutionalists, those who believe that government should be strictly limited in its powers. Wolverton admits that Chappelle may not be a fellow conservative but nevertheless commends him as a public figure for portraying the Second Amendment as the guarantor of the freedom of speech.
