Connecticut Legislature: Please write and pass a bill that deters demonstrations at funerals.

On December 14th 26 families experienced a tragedy no one should ever have to. Then, less than 48 hours later, Westboro Baptist Church has announced they plan to come to Newtown to protest the funerals of the victims, 20 of whom are between 5-7 years old. For families and an entire community who is mourning it is not right to allow more suffering on top of their pain. Please pass a bill to make their protests difficult or impossible. Arizona did this in 2011, after the Tuscon shooting, so there is a precedent.

      I simply feel that it's inappropriate to detract from the memory of the deceased.

      Protesting is important but there are limits. Protesting at funerals is an affront to the lives lost and the families there to mourn.

      If Arizona has passed this law to bar entry to hate groups, so can Connecticut. These people should not have funeral ruined by the radicals.

      Our law isn't strict enough these low life pieces of shit continue to break the law. Picketing for no reason. The Westboro Baptist Church should loose their church status.
