Vast majority support anti-desecration amendment

Opinion Research Corporation conducted a survey of 1,004 Americans, finding that while 81-percent supported the concept of protecting the flag from being burned, 75-percent are actually in favor of it becoming law. The poll has a plus or minus three percent margin of error.

I have mixed feelings about this myself. I love the flag, and cherish what it represents. Certainly anyone who destroys a flag belonging to another can and should be subject to criminal sanctions. But I have a problem with makig it a criminal act to do whatever you want with your own property.
