If anyone can cite one of the Supreme Court decisions, I'd appreciate it. I'd like to read their reasoning.
I already did, on page 1, but here it is again. Link. These decisions, however, apply specifically to door-to-door religious proselytizers.

It sounds odd to me that a town can stop WalMart from setting up shop, but is forced to allow door-to-door selling.
Commerce =! speech. The religious proselytizers in question were not selling anything.
