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ban in Missouri that collapsed under a challenge by the American Civil Liberties Union and a St. Peters ban that was rescinded under the threat of a lawsuit this year.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.
