Considering the source is the HuffPo, I didn't take it very seriously but went online and did some additional research. I just cannot get my mind around a "pick and choose" metality. From what I have seen the GOP and many conservative followers, the Constitution is the basis for many of their arguments (gun rights for example).
"The bill says the First Amendment only applies to the federal government and does not stop state governments, local governments and school districts from adopting measures that defy the Constitution. The legislation also says that the Tenth Amendment, which says powers not reserved for the federal government belong to the states, prohibits court rulings that would seek to apply the First Amendment to state and local officials."
What is the point in having the Constitution if States are free to ignor or as this says defy any part of it they disagree with?
