    Did a search and didn’t find this on Glocktalk yet.

    H.R. 347 is an anti-protest bill.

    If you protest in the presence of the President, such as behind the barricades put up by the Secret Service, then the Secret Service can arrest you.

    It is a felony.

    Both houses passed the bill and the President signed it into law in secret. It pretty much makes Freedom of Speech illegal.

    I think we are supposed to either bow, or just stand solemnly and think pleasant thought as the 'anointed one' passes by.

    As in the previous threads, way more has been read into this than it actually
    says or implies.

    Protesting the president is NOT now a felony.
    Freedom of speech is NOT now illegal.

    Some people need to learn to read without drawing unrealistic
    assumptions and conclusions.

    Save your fantasies for the bedroom.

    Everyone go back to paying your taxes and keep your mouths closed.

    All is well.
