Arizona inhabitants are making strides to prevent the Westboro Baptist Church from disrupting the funerals for the victims of Saturday's tragic shootings in Tucson, with bikers and others planning a massive counter attack and state lawmakers fast-tracking a bill to harbor the group.

The Kansas-based Westboro church, (example of their protest pictured left) is notorious for showing up at the funerals of dead soldiers and other high-profile gatherings wielding anti-gay signs but when the church announced it would picket the funeral Thursday Gabrielle Giffords, Tucson- and Phoenix-area residents started organizing immediately. "It makes me sick to my stomach," said Glen Littell, who's bringing a pack of bikers from the Phoenix Motorcycle Rider Group to Tucson on Thursday. "They're a stench from a slaughterhouse."

So the Westboro Baptist Church are stoking more flames, this time at the funerals of the Arizona shootings and here's hoping that their presence is eradicated.
