ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- St. Charles County lawmakers are taking a crack at stopping demonstrations at funerals and are confident they will succeed.
Lawmakers say the main reason for this is the anit-gay protests that are often held by the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas at military funerals throughout the country. Bans have been attempted before, but failed.
Notably, a statewide ban in Missouri that collapsed under a challenge by the American Civil Liberties Union and a St. Peters ban that was rescinded under the threat of a lawsuit this year.
Supporters in St. Charles County think they have a shot at beating any legal challenge this time around. The ban will be up for a vote on November 29th.
