  1. Ron DeSantis:

    You have orthodoxies that are promoted, and other viewpoints are shunned or even suppressed, we don’t want that in Florida – you need to have a true contest of ideas. Students should not be shielded from ideas, and we want robust First Amendment speech on our college and university campuses.

  2. Alex Spiro:

    There's not any binding precedent that says you can't, right ? And so when the law doesn't say you can't do something and you're a prosecutor trying to get a conviction, trouble can ensue, given the gravity of the harm that can come from this and the important artistic rights and First Amendment rights at stake, this is an easy call.

  3. Minnesota State Patrol:

    We respect the right of everyone to express themselves under the First Amendment, but the freeway is not a place to do that.

  4. Di Maio:

    It would be a serious problem for the government if anyone in the coalition presents an amendment (to restore immunity) without a deal (with us) beforehand.

So if (immunity) were the only defense it would be an uphill defense, but it's only one of many responses.
