Lincoln Hansen wrote, "Protecting our flag is the right thing to do. Anyone who respects this country should feel likewise."

The statement clearly indicates that Mr. Hansen is not well versed in the Constitution, the right to protest inequity and injustice here, and how our wonderful country is far better off because of the historical interaction of our charter document and those wanting a better America.The heart of these great United States is the Constitution, not the flag. Do not injure the soul of this country with a puerile and potentially fascist-like action such as an amendment banning flag burning.
