Journalism is nothing but leftist social activism today. That is what they teach in Journalism school as the baseline for how to disseminate the agenda, not news.

More is the key word.

Yes. They don't waste too much time talking. They let their AK-47s do the talking.

I am pro 2A, so I am presenting these arguments for the sake of the discussion.

Are you anti 1A, or is there another reason you'd want to limit speech?
One article I read about the Rwanda massacres was that 70% of those killed, between 500,000 and 1 million, wete killed with bladed weapons such as machetes.

Funny poll, as usual giving two choices when the third one is obvious - BOTH of them can be dangerous.

It's why the First amendment is not unlimited.

Similar limitations to the Second amendment would logically follow.

The question is which is more dangerous.

Definitely speech.

Anybody voting for anything else is delusional to say the least.

Think communism/socialism.

The obvious answer would be gun, at least physically speaking. I'm a HUGE proponent of free speech just because it is more powerful, aka "dangerous" in a lot of ways, than a gun.

The question is which is more dangerous.

Can your speech be Constitutionally limited when your home by yourself?

And there is a fallacy in your question - because it does not allow for the real possibility that they are not different; that they both present a real and present danger in some cases.
