More than just the second amendment

I am going to take a step aside for the most part about gun laws and gun rights and talk about another right that will pop up soon enough and that is the first amendment. The reason I bring up this amendment is because to nobody’s surprise, the Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest the memorial service for the dead in Connecticut’s shooting in their attempts to piss people off and milk a lawsuit from them. Now the WBC can get away with this because they use free speech, free religion and free assembly to legally do this, all from the 1st amendment. The question is should there be limits on the first amendments the same way we are proposing limits on the 2nd amendment? And we could go further. In response to the planned protests, Anonymous leaked private information about the church members. Is that covered by free speech? If that attack hypocritical? Just a thought to ponder.
