A Firing Squad with No Black Hood

No, sir, I disagree with the firing squad idea, although it is very appropriate for his end. We need to revive the so called 'cruel and unusual' punishments like the gas chamber and the electric chair. That, and the end of 'death row' inmates DYING OF OLD AGE before their sentence is carried out. The average time for a so called 'death row' inmate between conviction and execution is greater than 18 years in most states. IF the state even has the death penalty. Lethal injection? What BS, the killer isn't even conscious when they punch his ticket!

STONING... an appropriate end for this murderer and all others.

Any unnecessary infliction of pain, regardless of the provocation is wrong. Especially if you subscribe to the Christian religion. That is revenge and revenge is wrong. Simply kill him as quickly and painlessly as possible and get it over with. Anything else is just the same as what he did. Strap him face down on a bench and fire a 357 into the base of his skull. That is over in seconds and you don't have the sin of wrongful infliction of pain on your soul. Wow! Maybe I'm not an atheist after all. I seem to really be getting into the Christian way of doing things.

Go vote out your liberal lawmakers in Sacramento and their stupid anti-gun laws.

a .357 into the base of his skull is going to blow his head wide open and leave a big mess to clean up. Why inflict that cleanup on someone?

a properly placed .22 would suffice. or use the air tool they use on cattle.
It would also be nice if we could harvest their organs afterwards for transplants for decent folks.

Is painful execution "unnecessary"? If someone will simply be "put to sleep" like a beloved pet, there's much less reason to fear the executioner; especially if you intend to throw your life away anyway. (Most mass murderers suicide or are killed by police.)
t is inevitable that talk of gun control will arise as a renewed national discourse following the Aurora, Colorado movie theater murders.  I am thinking that this is perhaps the best time to reaffirm the Second Amendment canon.  If James Madison’s reasoning cannot withstand examination during a time of testing, then it probably is not reasonable.
