"Next, they will rule that shooting at people in Texas is also a form of constitutionally protected free speech."

No they'd argue that if the circumstances meet the criteria that it is a common law right of self defence supported by any additional statutory rights, else they'd call it murder.... bit like Britain really, where your right to self defence is established in common law and supported in statute by the Criminal Law Act 1967 and the Human Rights Act 1998..
