Question: Should shirts bearing messages be banned from the Capitol gallery?
1. Yes, it’s disruptive to the somber proceedings of the institution
2. Yes, but only when the president is addressing a joint session of Congress
3. Yes, some messages are designed to be incendiary so you have to ban them all
4. Yes, otherwise protesters will claim a free-speech right to also use signs, banners and chants
5. Yes, offending others should always be illegal
7. No, if T-shirt messages are banned, then flag lapel pins and patriotic ribbons will be banned too
8. No, a government that can tell people what shirts not to wear is too big
9. No, the First Amendment says ‘Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech’
DFO: No. 2 — The State of the Union address isn’t a time for theatrics in the gallery. The focus should be on the president’s message, not some fool spectator who wants media attention.
