(KMOV) – Lawmakers approved a ban on any demonstrations within 300 feet of a military funeral in St. Charles County Monday night. 

The newly approved ban is modeled after one in Nebraska. 
 
Supporters of the ban are upset with religious protestors that show up at military funerals. 
 
The American Civil Liberties Union claims the ban is unconstitutional and says they plan to challenge the ban on behalf of the Westboro Baptist Church, in Kansas.
