Should Congress vote to restrict picketing at funerals?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on February 2, 2006
“Even though I don’t agree with it, I don’t think there should be a law against it because the Constitution protects political speech.”
“No. I don’t think they should. I think it’s an issue of free speech.”
“Reluctantly no. People have a right to speak, even if it’s in extremely bad taste. Our rights seem to be slowly going away, and we need to look after the ones we have left.”
“I would say yes. I was at Lucas Frantz’s funeral in Tonganoxie, because he was an ex-student of mine. If they could have protested tastefully, it wouldn’t have been as big of an issue. I thought it was completely unnecessary.”
