Unfortunately this is the case but they do have a right to protest, off private property in a public setting, via permit where they are allowed to protest. Even if I think they are scum of the earth hypocritical d-bags.
    Yes, you are right, hard as it is to take. And you're to be admired for bringing up what is true and defines our country - even with these types. Hard as it is to take in this case, we are a nation where the Law is honored over all and we can't just act on the way we feel. That's what the shooter did.

    I also abhor the fact that the WBC has chosen to protest in Tucson. I feel the same way when the neo-nazis do the same, or any other group that is radical and extreme. But let's remember that since we all here believe in the 2nd amendment, let's not exclude the 1st one too. These people, like it or not, do have the right to peacefully assemble and say what they want.

    That said, I do hope that there are many more counter-protestors blocking them from beeing seen or heard.

    ^This.

    They have the right to peaceably assemble. And people who are not hateful animals (I refuse to call them "people") have the right to peaceably assemble between them and decent human beings

    I agree, there is nothing in this world more precious than a child. It boils my blood to think that these people want to inflict more pain on a family after the death of their child. They should be delt with.

    CNN just reported that the Arizona legislature will pass legislation to block protestors with a 300' margin:

    http://edition.cnn.com/2011/US/01/11...tboro/?hpt=Mid

    And, when asked why they are protesting, the WBC spokesperson replied:

    "We picket the funerals to make these vital points to the living!" Phelps-Roper said. "If you heed, it is life and health and peace and safety. God sent the shooter! Praise God for ALL his works, and BE YE THANKFUL!."

    Their not twisting any real doctrine here. What they are doing is failing to apply it equally to themselves. And that's the problem. Pharisee's, hypocrites, and brood of vipers all of them. None of us is that righteous alone.

    I believe the fire department needs to hold a hose drill at what ever location they start picketing at. That would be one way to clean the streets.

    The WBC may have bitten off more than they can chew on this one.
    I'd like to see about 5000 angry citizens show up.
    They don't need the legislature to pass another law, let this get sorted out the old fashioned way.

    Poor, beautiful little girl.
    Born on 9/11 and buried near the WBC, that's just wrong.

    I still vote for a good ole fashion butt kickin'!

    I think it would be funny watchin' them WBC people the next time they try to eat corn on the cob without any teeth.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Over 7,000 Attending, Over 3,000 Maybe Attending

    I'd say WBC won't be any closer than 500 ft.
