WorldNetDaily Poll —

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
6. Yes
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'
10. Other

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.
