The 1st Amendment: FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
The 2nd Amendment: THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS
The 1st Amendment is subject to restrictions on time, place, and manner. There are laws against slander and, yes, conspiracy.

Likewise, the 2nd Amendment is still subject to quite a bit of regulation.

So why are these people really being arrested? Weather you agree with their political views or not you cant deny they are within their rights as Americans and nothing here proves otherwise!
Their rights don't include hatching a conspiracy to attack a government building, nor do they extend to gearing up and training for that specific purpose.

We're not on the jury, and we haven't seen the indictment, so we don't have all the facts. However, prosecutors don't usually bring a case unless they've got some evidence.
