No, I don’t respect anyone who does but they should have the right to do so

No, it’s just a piece of cloth that doesn’t represent what it should

It shouldn't be illegal but there should be a penalty for it, a very small one

@959XMKJfrom Alberta  answered…3mos

Yes, the burning of anything that represents people, disrespects those people

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.

Burning a flag is considered a proper way of disposing of an old flag.

@92TPFLJfrom Manitoba  answered…7mos

Yes, but only if it touches the ground, otherwise it should be considered an expression of hate

@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.

@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.

No because it should have a pure black flag that you aren’t aloud to burn

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

@8ZX5HSVLiberalfrom Alberta  answered…8mos

No, as it is a military custom done out of respect towards the flag.

@8ZX3GXZConservativefrom Ontario  answered…8mos

No, police have more important things to do than arrest flag burners.

@8ZTSR7Dfrom Ontario  answered…9mos

Proper disposal of a flag is to respectfully burn it, not simply put in the trash. Canada has flag protocols, but no laws or enforcement of those showing disrespect for our flag.

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.
