But in the constitution don't we as citizens have that right?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The right to assembly and freedom of assembly
Yes, supposedly. I could cite some examples where that one went out the window: OWS, Civil Rights Movement, Kent State, etc... Seems these days the constitution is only supported when it suites 'their' purposes and not the peoples rights. However, that's politics and this is a webmasters forum.
It will be interesting to see how this turns out. Let's hope it's actually used for the stated purpose. I'm sure there will be ways around this if needed.
