No "free speech zones"

      Colorado Springs, CO

If Mayor Bach passes a code that only allows "free speech" in certain zones, it is no longer free speech and tramples all over our First Amendment rights.

The big concern to me, if this passes, how far will it go, next will we be arrested for saying something in public that another person does not agree with, will we only certain businesses only be allowed to advertise and not others, would churches no longer be able to post bible verses outside of their building...where will it all end

This is not just a matter that should concern locals to Colorado Springs, if this passes here, your town WILL be next. Free speech is one of the most important and basic right our Constitution grants us, without it we are no longer free people in any sense of the word.

I urge you to sign this petition, pass it around because if this happens life as we know it will no longer be the same.

      Our constitutional rights are being whittled away enough as it is. Something like this takes it to another extreme!
