PHOENIX (AP) -- Arizona lawmakers hope to head off protests by a Kansas church at the funerals for the victims of Saturday's shooting. They've drafted a law to ban protests at funeral sites.

The Westboro Baptist Church said it plans to picket Thursday's funeral for 9-year-old Christina Green.

The church has picketed military funerals to proclaim that the deaths are God's punishment for America's tolerance of homosexuality.
