Do You Agree that Military Funeral Protests Should be Banned?

Funeral Held For Solider Killed In Afghanistan By: Scott Olson/Getty Images News

The President has signed a law prohibiting protests at military funerals in the two hours immediately prior to and following a military funeral.

It’s a measure, the President said, that will ensure that our service members get laid to rest with “the utmost honor and respect.”

Although I’m a great believer in free speech and assembly, I’ll admit, I find it repulsive that people sometimes protest at military funerals and make an already heartbreaking event even more difficult for the families of the fallen soldiers.

My father was laid to rest with a 21-gun salute in a military funeral for all his faithful years serving in the U.S. Air Force and I honestly don’t know how I would have handled it if there were protesters present.

My heart goes out to every person who must bury their loved one and all the more so when that person was killed in a war.
