Flag Burning

Various comments on Flag Burning: Alder on the Corner : "I think a constitutional amendment to prohibit flag burning is an abomination." Captain's Quarters: "what we will have will be hundreds of amendments addressing narrow issues that will create massive confusion and complications for legislatures and law-enforcement efforts. We will have the EU Constitution instead of the compact framework that has served us so well for the last two centuries."
Plus The Anchoress and Eugene Volokh's post and article.

Various hat tips to Instapundit.

Stryker has the definitive word: "Given the events of September 11th, I could get behind an anti-people burning amendment....But not the flag burning, though. Anytime you use the Constitution to limit freedom instead of expanding it, I think that can be considered a bad thing. I always thought the Constitution was the means through which the People told the government what it could and could not do, not the other way around. But I guess Iím weird that way."

Count me weird too.
