Protestors picketing Military Recruiting Offices

I do not like the idea of protesters at Recruiting offices, but a a retired military member who swore to defend not only The United states of America but the Constitution of this country. The protesters have that God given right as allowed by the Constitution of the United States of America and the Laws within the Country. That is the biggest problem with most people in this country is they do not read and understand the Constitution.

Isn't this the reason most of us wore the uniform, to protect those rights?

they have the right to picket, but they should not interfere with the recruiting process.

Even though Constitutional for all American Citizens to protest in America, do not believe anyone should protest against The U.S. Military and/or SOLE GUARANTORS of all our Constitutional Rights. Politicians (highest to lowest echelon) & even Supreme Court Judges GUARANTY NOTHING.

Picketing military recruiting offices

I am shocked that there are almost 70% that felt this wasn't the right of the people.

This is exactly why we wore the uniform. To protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

The Constitution allows this type of protesting. The First Amendment should be cherished and protected.

I bet most of the 70% are pro Second Amendment to boot. Doesn't wash.

In 1966 on return from Vietnam the first time We were set upon and even spit in face. Peace signs being waved. parents sending druggie sons to canda and other places to keep from serving. Now at 71 I STILL hate the peace sign and the flower child! Most of us still had mud, blood and guts on clothles. Wake up america! It will be here you may see this. No, No right to protest near the base. We only was doing what we were asked to do. PROTECT all bunch of COWARDS!!!
