There is nothing that says you can't stand across the street and protest. Unless they declare the entire city a special event area (highly unlikely) you still have your voice. There is no reason that it is necessary to crash a rally etc, to impose your beliefs or grievances. I will never understand why people feel the need to stand on the doorstep to protest. If anyone has ever thought it legal to express your grievance to the President by running up to him and telling him face to face then you are only kidding yourself, and lucky if you don't get taken down by the Secret Service. That is a ridiculous assumption to have.
or within such proximity to, any restricted building or grounds when, or so that, such conduct, in fact, impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions
You can still protest, you just can't do it in washington out in front of the government buildings where the politicians can see you and where you will do the most damage for the american people.

I emailed both my senators and sent an email to the Whitehouse asking the President to Veto it...before you squeal revolution...why don't you ask someone to veto it or vote it down...
And guess what?...one of the senators offices actually responded already and said they appreciated my voice against this legislation...buncha hooey, but hey...at least I got a reply...edit on 2/29/2012 by Damrod because: (no reason given)

I have to agree with you and wrabbit, on this one. As much as I hate needless laws/bills, this one is a big *meh*.
My home state is Utah. If my Tea Party cronies and I want to protest DC we don't fly to DC, we make enough noise in Utah to get DC to listen.
