No, this is a violation of free speech, but even though I don’t respect anyone who does but they should have the right to do so. Plus, I Personally believe that it has now become just a piece of cloth that doesn’t represent what it should anymore, because America is an Oligarchy and NOT a Democracy

Only for those without US citizenship. But it should be equally legal for other US citizens to respond using lethal force.

If a flag is being retired it can be burned legally, any other situation is should be illegal.

@92NVQ27 from California answered…7mos

I think this is a symbolic speech and it's depending on each state on how they think should put this into legal or illegal.

@92KSP6V answered…7mos

Yes, but not in circumstances where the populace feels threatened or abused by those in power.

@8ZYQ39C from California answered…8mos

I'm between yes and no, since the American flag is a piece of cloth that can be easily replaced. It's also disrespectful burning someone's possession.

If you burn the American flag, you should get a free airplane ticket to another country where you can become a citizen.

Yes, this is an act meant to signify aggression, which, in insignificant amount of cases, will escalate to worse things in the future, and it may cause fires. We should maintain at least some semblance of patriotism required. Because if they hate the country, then they are not loyal to it, and are likely to commit treason, which is rightfully punishable by death to prevent the overthrow and collapse of the government.

No, however, I feel that it should only be allowed to burn the flag if it touches the ground.

@8YT92QK from Indiana answered…10mos

No, but only if it is out of respect like if the flag was in pieces

@8YDJ4K3 from Illinois answered…11mos

If its on your own property and doesn't cause a big fire or damage to property I'd say it's fine

@8Y9796Q from Michigan answered…11mos

i dont think it should be burned, but if someone wants to burn it thats their own personal choice. just dont cause chaos

@8Y2PBJR from Minnesota answered…12mos

No cuz it's how you retire the flag and I do it yearly in scouts.

@8Y2P827 from Minnesota answered…12mos

Yes, but Only in times of respect should it be allowed. For example if the flag touches the ground it should be respectfully burned

@8XHNZZR from Pennsylvania answered…1yr

No, but only because it's an incitement to riot for people that believe in the flag and as long as fighting words is recognized as a defense, burning of the flag should be illegal.

@8WPN6T6 from Ohio answered…1yr

No, it would violate free speech and it's the proper way to dispose of a flag anyways

@8WMXBZM from Virginia answered…1yr

yes it should be illegal unless you are retiring it because it is ripped or fell on dirty ground

@8WK5SV9 from Oregon answered…1yr

@8WF79R2 from California answered…1yr

No, it should only be done for the sake of symbolic speech. This should be regulated and you should file for an official permit and have good reason to do so. Only special cases should be allowed, but not it should be legal.

@8WC3QKP from Pennsylvania answered…1yr

I think that it is very wrong and disrespectful to burn the American Flag, but making it illegal seems somewhat extreme. Maybe enforcing a fine instead of something more drastic.

@8WC42M4 from Pennsylvania answered…1yr

I don't think it should be illegal as far as arresting someone, but I definitely think this is wrong and there should be some sort of punishment, possibly a fine.

@8WBJLGZ from Connecticut answered…1yr

no because if a flag gets ripped or something it should be properly retired and burned.

@8W9BYRC from Pennsylvania answered…1yr

No, but it’s just a piece of cloth that holds cultural value and meaning so it should not meant to be burn. However as I stated at the beginning of the answer, it is just a piece of cloth, so it should not be illegal

@8VC2Q88 from Virginia answered…1yr

No, but citizens should be encouraged to deter someone from this.
