Burning the Bill of Rights

Editorial from the NY Times - With the Fourth of July fast approaching, Senate Republicans are holding a barbecue. Unfortunately, instead of grilling hot dogs and hamburgers, they are trying to torch a hole in the First Amendment's free speech guarantee by passing an amendment to the Constitution that would allow federal and state authorities to punish flag-burning.

Some things should be out of bounds even in a competitive election year. Messing with the Constitution is one of them.
Here I agree with them. They should just pass a law that if a flag-burner gets beat up for doing so that the beating wasn't illegal either.
