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

@9R9B3VWVeteran from Kentucky answered…2wks

No, I don’t respect this action but they have the right to do so

@9QFH7X4Republican from Pennsylvania answered…2mos

It honestly depends on the circumstance, if the burning is for retiring the flag, that is fine. However if people are burning the flag as a form of protest or other forms of hate, they should be properly charged and punished.

@9QCWZ3TRepublican from Ohio answered…2mos

yes, but only if the flag is ceremonial burned as a sign of respect

@9QBBL32Democrat from New Jersey answered…2mos

@9Q9BHX9Republican from Wisconsin answered…2mos

Yes, you should not disrespect the nation that has been made so uniquely to provide rights.

@9Q3VQ42Peace and Freedom from Illinois answered…3mos

i don't agree with burning someones flag its a symbol of racism to me but people should have free will

@9Q2QHHYGreen from Wisconsin answered…3mos

Only if any nation's flag is in need of disposal. You should never toss a flag into the garbage. It's disrespectful.

@9PWHGPMPeace and Freedom from Arkansas answered…3mos

No, this is the proper method to get rid of an American flag. It is respectful to burn the flag when it is no longer suitable to be flown due to damage or old age of the flag.

@9PT375DSocialist from Kansas answered…3mos

I thought it was supposed to be destroyed if it touched the ground or something. Plus, free speech.

@9PSKN9NRepublican from Minnesota answered…3mos

No, respectfully burning the national flag is the appropriate method of disposal. We cannot ban flag burning outright.

@9PS55FYPeace and Freedom from California answered…3mos

Yes, and it should be illegal to burn any nation's flag, but I think the punishment for this should be reduced.

@9PKK3DDWomen’s Equality from Indiana answered…3mos

No, It should not be because if the flag touchs the ground you should burn it or if it gets a rip in it you burn it is a sign of respect. Now if you just want to burn it too burn it please don't

@9PK7TR5Green from South Carolina answered…3mos

No, this is a violation of free speech, and it’s just a piece of cloth that doesn’t represent what it should.

@9PJZFC4Veteran from Texas answered…3mos

Yes, it should be illegal because people have died defending the flag and our Freedom.

@9PGZNYVWomen’s Equality from California answered…3mos

Yes, if the Boy Scouts or Military is retiring a flag, then it is fine

@9PGTR59Transhumanist from Oklahoma answered…3mos

No, provided the flag has not been stolen, flag burning has been judged to be a protected form of speech.

@9PCSYZ9Democrat from New York answered…3mos

I don’t think that it’s right, because of what the flag is supposed to stand for. But I will acknowledge why they did it and the injustices it will bring to the conversation that we need to have

@9PCBKQ8Transhumanist from Mississippi answered…3mos

No but people have the Freedom of speech but you shouldn't burn the American flag on American grounds

@9PBZ9VYRepublican from Indiana answered…3mos

the only way to burn the american flag as respect is if the flag touches the ground

@9P8DPZ6Peace and Freedom from North Dakota answered…3mos

I think it is very disrespectful and wrong but I don’t know if it should be illegal or not.

@9P6P454Republican from Florida answered…3mos

@9P4TYGWWomen’s Equality from New York answered…3mos

i agree that its a way of showing our first ammendment but its disrespectful to the ones who fight for our country every day.

@MlynnnnylMWomen’s Equality from Nebraska answered…3mos

No, I don't respect anyone who does burn any nation's flag but they should have the right to do so if they please.

@9P26HX9Working Family from Missouri answered…3mos

@9NZ4SWBVeteran from Kansas answered…3mos

It should be illegal to burn an American Flag that is not their own property.

@9NXYN92Peace and Freedom from West Virginia answered…3mos

No, it is actually the most respectful way to "get rid" of the American Flag, according to the Flag Code.

@9NXJG57Republican from New York answered…3mos

@9NV8V8NWomen’s Equality from West Virginia answered…3mos

I don't like it when they burn the flag, but they have the right to do so.

@Garrick-DurstWorking Family from Massachusetts answered…3mos

No, I don’t respect anyone who does but they should have the right to do so however not in public as it then becomes a public safety issue. Any public burning should be punishable according to the area you are in I.e. state level.

@9NKSQ77Women’s Equality from Ohio answered…3mos

As long as they aren't hurting anyone I don't see why it would be illegal. People should have a right to express their dislike of how America is today.

@9ND59TLWorking Family from New Jersey answered…3mos

I mean if it’s illegal to kill a praying mantis it should be at least illegal with a fine to burn the flag that represents the freest country in the world.

@9N6BWZWAmerican Solidarity from Kentucky answered…3mos

No, however it is disrespectful to burn any nation’s flag and there should be a fine to people who do so.

@9MY39BRDemocratfrom Maine  answered…3mos

It is by law that if the flag is dirtied beyond repair or is broken in other matters it is said that the only proper way to get rid of a flag is to burn or burry the flag.

@9MX98N9Progressive from California answered…3mos

Yes, I agree with the 1989 case of Johnson vs Texas that sided with Johnson that burning the flag was seen as a symbolic act of protest.

@9MWWTF5Democrat from Utah answered…3mos

if its for the right cause no but if its out of spite then yes

@9MV65X4Transhumanist from Colorado answered…3mos

It shouldn't be illegal but it should be a social norm to be frowned upon

@9MT4KDPRepublican from Hawaii answered…3mos

you could but why would you it represents the country you are in and it shows you have freedom already and all you're doing is the show of trying to get rid of said freedom

@9MSTZVDRepublican from Minnesota answered…3mos

Depends, retiring a flag it’s fine, otherwise it should be illegal

@9MNLQ27Peace and Freedomfrom Maine  answered…3mos

@9MLTYMKWomen’s Equality from New York answered…3mos

You shouldn't be allowed to burn the American flag unless you are retiring it respectfully

@9MLQN7VVeteran from North Carolina answered…3mos

I don’t know if it should be illegal. But it should be in a public street or park. Things like that nature. It’s distasteful to do so.

@9MKZXKNRepublican from North Carolina answered…3mos

Yes, not for any political reason but because its a safety and fire hazard

@9MKKRXRPeace and Freedom from Michigan answered…3mos

No. While I do not believe that it is appropriate to do so for any reason except for retiring the flag, it is a violation of free speech.

@9MJ3YDFPeace and Freedom from Texas answered…3mos

Yes, and I am not from the United States, but just as I would not like to be deceived in respect to the Mexican flag, it is the same for all countries, it is a lack of respect
