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.
- Connecticut Legislature
