Battle Of The Bill Of Rights

I heard through the grapevine that anti-war protesters were demonstrating at the funereal services of military personnel that had been killed in action in Iraq. Whether or not anyone personally agrees with our reason for being in Iraq, waving the anti-war flag at a soldiers funeral service (in my opinion) is the single most disrespectful act anyone can do. Objectors to U.S. involvement overseas claim the first amendment right to freedom of speech and freedom to peaceably assemble ... personally, I think in return it's time surviving family members of the deceased express their second amendment right to bear arms. Despite opinions on the war, all GI's KIA should be given the honors and respect they deserve for serving in the Armed Forces ... PERIOD! For crying out loud, at least give the families a chance to grieve!

Oh, that explains the bikers riding shotgun at soldiers funerals. I suppose the point was, look, we've killed another young man (or woman) with total lack of sensitivity to the mourners. Lord!
