Free speech has responsibilities. You wouldn't yell fire in a cinema unless there was one.
Similarly, trying to cause psychological hurt to people with words isn't much different to trying to cause physical harm with your fists if you get right down to it.

I get they can't be stopped due to free speech and all that, but what I don't get is that at some point this crosses a line and enters the territory of harassment right? I don't understand how this can't be considered harassment? especially at Sandy Hook? I really don't think this will end well, too many raw emotions and people dealing with the unthinkable angry beyond words, with so much aggression built up and just looking for someone to take it out on, and I have to say these people make very tempting targets!
