The first amendment is the freedom of speech, religion and press
burning the flag is wrong and should be illegal
it 's a form of symbolic speech and should be legal
The burning of the flag is a form of symbolic speech and is protected under the first amendment
Flag desecration is legal because the supreme court decided the 1st amendment to the constitution says its unconstitutional for a government to prohibit because it's seen as "symoblic speech"
