30. There are and there have been restrictions on freedom of speech put in place before

see: Espionage and Sedition Acts during WWI (see also the case of Schenck v US, where Oliver Wendell Holmes made the famous analogy to shouting "fire" in a crowded theatre). The answer to your question is "yes, there are Constitutional methods for denying freedom of speech". (Or at least reasons which have been found constitutional in time of war and national emergency.)
