JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -Missouri lawmakers are promising a new effort to shield mourning families from funeral demonstrators. A federal judge last year declared unconstitutional two Missouri laws banning or restricting funeral protests. Lawmakers say they plan to try again with proposals that balance free speech rights of protesters with the privacy concerns of family members attending a funeral. Nonetheless, the goal appears to be largely the same: Keep demonstrators and mourners as far apart as possible. Lawmakers have sharply criticized funeral picketing and the protesters who conduct them. Critics of the protest bans contend that the government cannot bar peaceful speech on a public sidewalk simply because it does not like the speaker’s message.
