Pahrump, Nevada Bans Foreign Flags

Story here. Pahrump is a bit over an hour west of Las Vegas. I link for two reasons:

1. This law is blatantly unconstitutional. If the Supreme Court won't let states outlaw burning the American flag, there's absolutely no way they would allow banning foreign flags. This is an obvious restriction on political speech.

2. Now I have something to associate with Pahrump, other than "Oh yeah, that's where Las Vegas goes to bang hookers legally."
