With funeral services for the six victims being planned in Arizona, state legislators have begun to try to head off protests planned by the Westboro Baptist Church. The controversial church has made a name for itself by holding protests at military funerals and other events to draw attention to its beliefs. The Arizona legislature on Tuesday passed a bill creating a 300-foot buffer between the funerals and any protests, and Gov. Jan Brewer (R) signed it into law that evening.
