You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

BTW I know violence is bad but I'd pay good money to see a close up of a sniper shot that took out Phelp's head in an explosion of brain, bone, and blood! And then watch another one piss his or her pants.

Personally I think the law is unconstitutional and a bad idea. I don't like the idea of being restricted like they chose to do.
On the other hand, I've always thought the Phelps clan's tactics clearly are a form of incitement and they should be held accountable for that. Any reasonable person would conclude they are deliberately stirring up anger in an attempt to cause violence. It's literally how the Phelps' make a living, getting people pissed off enough to throw a punch and then suing them.
edit: ****, I'm a liberal, that means I have to be against free speech. I forgot. You know, because liberals are always bad and conservatives are always good.
One of you will end up here next!

You mean like free speech? That's as sacred a thing as they come. At least to some people.Aren't some things sacred and dont't have to be protected by the constitution?
"Yes, but are you a Protestant atheist or a Catholic atheist?".- Northern Irish joke
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Why couldn't the shooter kill the church people instead? That would be a lot better, hell, I'd even send him a Facebook friend request.
