If you don't like the drunk driving example, then in your bizzarro world where all speech is absolute and free of consequences, would lawmakers be allowed to consider the possible consequences someone giving step-by-step instructions on how to turn a semi-automatic rifle into a fully automatic machine gun, or how to make a car-bomb and plant it so that it kills the maximum number of people?
