You apply it to the 2nd amendment, and suddenly the argument which sounds crazy in the first case, becomes fine in the second case.
That's a poor analogy. Yelling "Fire" in the theatre has the malicious intent of causing chaos and harm to others. A gun analogy would be to start pointing it at people just to scare them and watch them run, and I believe that's already illegal.

Me owning a gun does nothing to others except providing the means to defende liberty should it ever become necessary.
