You may not have noticed but your 1st has been suspended in a large number of democratic strong holds.

They approve Riots,Home Depot,Liqueur stores,Abortion clinics, But shut down your 1st amendment rights in churches.
Yes, I agree with you. But they are not going to do that on protests.

I know you didn't say anything about the second amendment. But if you can do that to first amendment rights, don't you think that will open attacks to do away with second amendment rights ?

And anyone who would want to put a temporary stop to protests are basically people who are law abiding and good Americans and would not think of doing that anyway.

The scum that is doing the protests are the active ones.
Read Shady's comment above.

When the first rioter throws something at a police officer he should be taken down and arrested by what ever means is required. If somebody breaks into my house they will be met with force, deadly force! Why not the same for these businesses and government offices.

I would hope we would all agree that protests are fine. Something to do with the 1A.

Rioting, attacking innocent people, arson, looting are not.

The former should always be allowed.

The latter should be stopped. Sad fact is they are not being stopped in some cities.

I basically agree with that with a few exceptions. People should not be allowed to protest or demonstrate in front of a private residence of people who they disagree with. There were demonstrations at DHS head Chad Wolf's private residence to intimidate him to removing Federal Marshalls by disrupting and disturbing his family. There really should be laws against that as far as I'm concerned.

And I completely and totally agree with that.

Never going to happen.

I don't think you could, or would ever want the First Amendment temporarily be suspended. How would you like the Second Amendment to be temporarily suspended? Slippery slope....
I think that's exactly what I was talking about in the first few posts I made in reply to your first post on this thread.

So now you are agreeing with what I was saying about the right to freedom of speech and to protest? Or just stealing other people's opinions?

You're as bad as, or worse than the other sheep out there. I seriously doubt you have ever thought for yourself, or ever had an original thought in you life.

The only way to stop rioting is to make rioting a dangerous activity. If a brick, bottle, or other object is thrown, it should be treated the same as any other deadly projectile and draw return fire from multiple officers. That will disperse the riot quickly. It will also make people less likely to stay in a riot when it begins.
