Just wondering when a republican will introduce a bill outlawing the nazi flag?

That would be hell for a conservative running for office or re-election:

Vote for outlawing = loss of trump's base.
Vote against = opposition's wet dream.

5. Makes sense.

Would be great if it could be classified as a weapon.

2. It wouldn't get out of committee - it would be an unconstitutional violation

of the First Amendment.

6. I gave an instance where it might be banned.

State and local govts likely could do the same.

7. Interesting....

How do/would we treat the ISIL flag being flown in our country? Would it be confiscated and those waving it added to some list? They both represent groups of people who were trying to form a caliphate.......both are also failed states that terrorize......
