This is interesting, so far it's a law that hasn't really been enforced, they just throw them out.
But for safety reasons after the organized mob action of the Chicago people, maybe they should.
It's one thing to be outside expressing your displeasure, but quite another to go inside and disturb another first amendment rights just because you disagree.

In 2012, H.R. 347, a federal law dealing with protest, was amended to make it a crime to "disrupt the orderly conduct of government business or official functions" in areas where the Secret Service is providing protection.


It's a clash of 1st amendment rights, and let's be honest, people are going to come down on the side that they favor on this one.

Of course it's illegal. Harassment and disorderly conduct are illegal actions everywhere. That is indeed what is going on.

In Alabama, New Orleans and various other states, it's illegal to tie your alligator to a fire hydrant.

Molesting butterflies also carries a $500 fine.

Giraffes and parking meters are no no's.

In Detroit, Michigan it's illegal for a human to sleep in a bath tub. :/ I guess sometimes even drinking and passing out in the security of your own home is illegal.

I agree with you when you say that perhaps they should be enforced.. perhaps it will discourage unacceptable behaviors in the future, and people will realize that their rights do not include violating the rights of others.. (regardless of how much you dislike them!)

It's important that people can protest, but imagine if what happened to Trump happened to Obama in 2008 at his rallies.
Imagine the outrage.....if Obama got rushed by some white supremacists like Trump was rushed by that fool Thomas DiMassimo.

I would go as far as to say that it really isn't that important for these people to protest in this case. Do they have a right to protest, as long as it remains civil and orderly? Absolutely. But I do question the need and the motives behind it all.

In the 60s it was vital. Most of those protesting had no other option. The laws and regulations were set up in such a manner as to stifle their voices. They couldn't vote because they weren't 21 yet, or because Jim Crow laws made it damn near impossible. Yet the institutions that they were protesting affected their lives daily.

Fast forward to 2016. Lack of voting no longer is an issue. Don't like Trump? Don't vote for him. Get a majority of people not to vote for him and Trump isn't an issue. There seems to be an ulterior motive other than protest when these hooligans attempt to shout down and silence Trump and his supporters.

Apparently you missed the memo of Trump threatening to send his supporters after Bernie.

Not to mention a potential breach in fire-safety codes when an establishment is over-run with additional persons that exceed that establishments allowable max. persons - it can compromise safe-escape routes and makes it difficult to fight a fire.

Perfectly OK as long as they are not sent there to disrupt. Even Bernie said so....
The problem with that is- Sanders may just convert em over to his side.

im pretty sure its technically illegal to protest period. a rally has to be government sanctioned to be considered legal. of course you can let the public know about this because if they did then you wouldn't be able to break protests up.

i could be wrong about this. dont just take my word for it.
