I guess the shirt is only available in extra large....soon it will need to be printed on larger items ( I suppose there is always the back of the shirt).
Interewsting to know HOW they masde it illegal - under what law?

It might come under some law which forbids things "offensive".
Or it might come under some law which forbids "disrespect".
Or it might be forbidden to use the names of soldiers killed.
I really don't know the legal details of this item.

You don't know the legal details because there are none. These shirts are not illegal anywhere in the USA, and they never will be. However, they are illegal in Ilsamic run countries.

"You don't know the legal details because there are none.
These shirts are not illegal anywhere in the USA, and they never will
be. However, they are illegal in Islamic run countries."
The web site that was selling them claimed they were illegal in two
states and may soon be banned nationwide. It's possible this might have
been sales-talk to make the shirts more attractive to customers.
But what about the man at the airport who was forced to remove his Anti-War T-Shirt?
That happened in the United States.

This is web site:
"Bush Lied They Died T-Shirt
Updated with 2,803 names of fallen U.S. troops.
This shirt is illegal in two states and could soon be illegal nationwide.
As seen on CNN, NPR, USA Today, and of course, FOX-News."

I was curious about the claim that selling the anti-war shirt was illegal in two states, and found references online to the laws referenced by the site. Fox news had a brief article here:http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,204944,00.html
The states have passed laws making it a misdemeanor to use a soldier's name or likeness for advertising purposes without consent (Oklahoma and Louisiana are referenced, I've also seen references to Kentucky attempting to pass a similar law).

The headline of this item should be changed or it should be deleted.
Second, if you can't verify such shakey claims, you shouldn't post it here; that's just irresponsible.
Figure out the correct story and I'll remove the flag. If the facts aren't "fished out" soon, I'd say nuke this item. Also, the link "go to original story" goes nowhere.
