The killing of our national symbol, the American Bald Eagle, is protected under federal law with a 1st time violation of 1 yr. in prison and/or fine up to $100,000. for individuals/$200,000. for an organization. Subsequent violations are treated as felonies, a maximum fine of $250,000. or 2 yrs. in prison.
A federal law which protects the American flag, taking the burning of, deficating on, and destruction of same out from under the umbrella of free speech is long overdue.
We The People, call on President Donald Trump and the United States Congress, to remove the burning and destruction of our American flag from under the umbrella of free speech, making it a federal crime to burn, deficate on, or destroy in any manner, punishable by imprisonment and fines against such perpetrators.
