A strong Death Penalty law would work wonders in supplanting gun violence. Use a gun and kill, you hang, in public view as we watch you snivel and cry your way to the gallows. That is the biggest deterrent of all. Who in their right mind would even want to risk that kind of scenario for their end time? I would certainly make a subversive think twice before doing the stupid thing. Also get rid of the unconstitutional drug laws. . . The government is the only one making money of those wars.

In cases like that, the perp should hang quickly - knock it off with this appeal after appeal that takes 10 15 20 years to get around to. In cases where there's no question of guilt, there's no reason a trial and sentence couldn't be carried out in 60 days or less. Appeals are there to ensure a paycheck for lawyers.

All victims get a fair trial. It's called the Second Amendment. They have a fair chance to buy a gun, learn to use it, and always carry it. There's fairness.

As the left continues to advocate for further restrictions on the Second Amendment, others are using it to save their lives.

This past Wednesday a young 12-year old girl in Bryan County, Oklahoma was able to protect her life when an intruder kicked in her back door and entered her house. Frantically, she called her mother who advised her to grab their household gun, hide in the closet, and call 911.

The intruder made his way through the house, and as he was opening the door of the closet, the young girl shot him through the closet door. The intruder...
