Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said authorities will arrest Westboro Baptist Church members if they protest outside the funerals of two women killed in a Lafayette theater shooting earlier this week.

“If they come here to Louisiana, if they disrupt this funeral, we’re gonna lock ‘em up,” Jindal said Sunday on Face the Nation.

“We’re gonna arrest them. They shouldn’t try that in Louisiana. We won’t abide by that here,” he added.

“Let these families grieve. Let them celebrate their daughters’, their children’s, their spouses’, their loved ones’ lives in peace. They better not try that nonsense here.”

Jindal suspended his 2016 presidential campaign since the shooting Thursday that also injured nine people.

All the way up to the Supreme Court, the Westboro protesters have won case after to case, defending their freedom of speech and right to express their voice – no matter how offensive that may be.

The church, led by the Phelps family, makes headlines for their offensive messages, hatred and volatile messages towards homosexuals.

    So Bobby doesn’t believe in free speech? I agree the WBC is awful, but I’m not going to give up my free speech so I don’t have to listen to them.
    Besides, they’ll just sue and win, they’re all made up of lawyers.
