First ammendment covers strippers in Texas, even if nothing else does

A Texas Judge has rejected a strip club tax according to NPR

People who work at Texas strip clubs remove their clothes, but they're still covered by the Constitution. The state imposed a fee of $5 per customer. The money was intended to go for sexual assault prevention, plus health care for the uninsured. But a state district judge has thrown out the tax, saying it's a "business activity involving expression that, while unpopular, is protected by the First Amendment."

I can only hope that the Second ammendment is given the same broad interpretation as the first.
