It's not about those making free speech, it's about receiving said speech. Criminalizing the receipt of unpopular/'bad' speech is no better than criminalizing the production of it.

My personal opinion on pornography is that anything non-exploitive should be fair game for anyone, but I believe the law is that you can't sell it to minors. It's the very crux of the issue to me, since films/music/books can be sold to minors until they are in the gray pornography area. For pornography obviously businesses can't set their own rules about selling to specific people if there are laws on the books superseding their rights. So while my statement was slightly overreaching, I think it still makes the appropriate point.

Other than pornography, which types of speech does the govt currently regulate? I feel they should regulate no speech at all, but I think Hate Speech is currently regulated as well.
