In America, we don’t get to simply ban things that we don’t like.

The Confederate flag has been removed from the grounds of the Charleston Capitol and placed in a museum as part of an exhibit on the Confederacy but it hasn’t been banned because any citizen can show the flag on their own property.

Nowhere in the Constitution do we find a right to acquire, use, or dispose of property. Nevertheless, the failure to mention a Right implies nothing about its
existence. The Framers simply assumed the existence of such Rights because the common law, grounded in property, was the background for all they did.
