I believe this law is trivial, but one should not be punished for expressing how they feel. This is taking an individual's human rights.

Although I love the American flag the one good thing that came out of the American anthem protests is we now know who the Patriots are and who the Winey babies are.

Retiring the flag is burning it and should stand. Burning the flag is free speech and should be allowed as long as no harm is caused to people or their property

No, as long as the flag is your own property, and does not damage or endanger any property not owned by you.

Yes, it is a sign of treason, and it should be illegal to burn any nation’s flag

Its a violation of free speech and, to a normal person, its a regular piece of cloth. If you want to burn it, burn it. If you don't want to burn it, don't.

No, unless it isn't burnt by the owner, the fire is a danger to the surroundings, etc. to make the conditions illegal.

@9GL7YNRTranshumanist from Illinois answered…1yr

The flag code states that to retire a flag it must be burned in a certain fashion, so in that instance no; however, if an individual burns a flag for protest of any kind then it should be illegal with legal consequences.

@9GKQYM8Peace and Freedom from Indiana answered…1yr

Yes, with the state of our country right now I think people should be able to burn the flag.

@9GC44X7Working Family from Illinois answered…1yr

Yes, extremely illegal. The desecration of the American flag should be a petty treason charge. The only time a flag should be burned is when it is no longer fit for display, and should be destroyed in a dignified way.
