Phelps bill a joke

While we all hate what happened in Anoka last week we should be absulutly ashamed of our lawmakers for making this political outside of the basic public statements from our governor and those that witnessed the pure evil.

Let Law enforcement the patriot guard and others do what they do best without putting an extra law on the books. The events in Anoka ran very smoothly, yet now because of that we are showing the Phelps gang the great respect of creating legislation that targets his group. While I fully understand the emotional reasoning behind the legislation it shows a great disrespect to all of the 99.99999% of Americans who would never consider such a display, it shows a great deal of disrespect for the patriot guard, it shows a great deal of disrespect for the Anoka Police, it shows a great deal of disrespect for the mourners, it shows a great deal of disrespect for the fallen hero. No the only people that this legislation shows respect for is the Phelps gang no matter how indirectly that small amount of respect is.

Lets be perfectly clear if that mother had a gun and shot that evil man a jury of her peers would have let her go free.

We don't need more laws to deal with situations like this. Beyond that it would likely get overturned in the courts, we don't need to have the most talked about bill of 3 consecutive legislation sessions overturned by the courts.
