Lifting the veil

There have been calls to ban the niqab from certain places (as well as some to ban it altogether).

Thoughts?

I feel uncomfortable when I see people wear them. I've seen talking heads (talking veils I suppose) say they get a sense of empowerment from it. I'm happy enough for people to wear them, so long as they want to. Saying that I don't like people hiding their faces

In these United States, we have a different legal frame in which to view this debate. Is this a religious parctice? Is this a cultural practice? That may be the main point of contention, here.
Also, can this be seen as an abuse issue?
The bigger question is: where does religious freedom begin and end? What cultural practices are allowable when they conflict with laws passed protecting the general well being of the populace (ie: adults not having their visage obscured in public)?
