Rubio sponsoring bill to limit protests at military funerals

Marco Rubio is sponsoring a bill called the Serve Act that will in effect limit protesters like Westboro Baptist Church from disrupting military funerals. Fox News is reporting the following limitations it will create:

  • 2 hour quiet time before/after funerals
  • 350ft buffer around funeral service
  • 500ft buffer around access routes to funeral service
  • Increased penalties for violations of new law

Here’s the clip:



I for one agree with it. I understand free speech but military families have a right to grieve in peace just as protesters have a right to protest. If someone’s rights must be limited, it must in this case be the protesters.
