Trump calls for an amendment to ban flag burning, says it’s a ‘no brainer.

Trump says that flag-burning isn’t protected speech because it’s likely to incite violence. But when you apply for equal protection under the law, then surely all of these examples should also be outlawed in the same fashion.

On appeal to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, the court overturned a conviction, saying that the State could not punish Johnson for burning the flag because the First Amendment protects such activity as symbolic speech.

Do you agree with the bill to ban flag burning?
