...Mr. President, et al.:
Under the new legislation, protests must be held at least 300 feet from military funerals and are prohibited two hours before or after a service. The law counters a 2011 Supreme Court ruling, which found that displays such as Westboro's were protected under the First Amendment.
Which of course means that WBC will in all likelihood be back before the Supreme Court in a few years. And they will likely win. And they should.
This is a very short-sighted move by both the president and congress. Hardly surprising in an election year, of course.
