Breaking News ~ Trump takes heat for wanting to outlaw flag burning -- but Clinton wanted the same in 2005http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/11/29/trump-takes-heat-for-wanting-to-outlaw-flag-burning-but-clinton-wanted-same-in-2005.html
Few simple things we can do that are legal and peaceful ~ make a citizens arrest for illegal burning, most counties and cities in the US have a no burn ordinance. Some counties do allow burning with a permit obtained through the forestry dept, but must be brush, leaves, tree branches and "nontoxic". The chemicals a typical flag is treated with to make the material weather retardant are toxic when burned. You will even have the EPA on your side. Illegal burning comes with stiff fines. Just as Freedom of Speech has limits, such as yelling our "fire" in a movie theater or as our 2nd amendment rights do have federal restriction and control, it is the same with Freedom of Speech. If we start requiring fines for illegal burning, at least it will cost them a fine. It also is a public hazard when burning in a crowd, if by chance you have asthma and the burning fumes caused you to experience respiratory problems, sue them. But be willing to deal with the heat if it comes your way.
