How about recognizing them for what they are — riots.
Probaly there’s already law against those.
Anyone who obstructs a roadway during a unpermitted protest or violent/disorderly assembly will face a 3rd Degree Felony.
He was just on Tucker’s show....
One thing was no bail after first offense
If you though anything at a police officer jail
Also cut off welfare for rioters.
I’m really becoming a DeSantis fan. I think he’s going to be a strong contender for 2024. I’m open to it if Pence wants to run and I’m curious what he’d have to say, but DeSantis is looking strong.
DeSantis also got rid of that woman in Broward county that was cheating on the vote counting the first week he was governor. I like this bill. Makes it illegal to disturb people in restaurants.

There is enough laws on the books to arrest anybody for anything. Enough with new laws, they will not enforce current ones.
If it gets quashed by a leftist judge a day later, just say "Enforcement of no solicitation in restaurants will include bludgeoning with nightsticks, tear gassing and beatings to be certain there is full compliance."
Legal precedent: "Unnecessary violence in the apprehension of the Blues Brothers has been approved."
