So we need laws to protect feelings?

Couldn't we just recycle the old "yelling fire in a crowded theater" bit?

I don't see how that would apply and even that would imply there should be limits on free speech.

Threatening people is against the law, correct?

Yes, threatening someone can be a criminal act.

So if you hire the hit man, just don't tell anyone and you're okay.

Don't you have to tell the hitman?

I could just give them the money and show a picture.

Even if I told them "I wish/want this person dead"

That's just free speech, people say that on the internet all day.

The moment I say it and spend some money with a guy, both things that are considered free speech, I'd be locked up for exercising my constitutional right.

You're not hiring the hit man to kill the hit man, therefore no threat, no crime.
