Every time the left spouts out about gun control, the right should respond by calling for a faster and more efficient death penalty for murder. After conviction, and with federal appeals, a condemned killer should be executed within two years after sentencing. This can be achieved with some common sense changes to criminal procedure. First is that appeals automatically move to the head of the federal docket with strict limits on appeal delays. Second that federal judges can only overturn by exoneration. Third, that states are declared "competent" to execute, so how they do it is not open for federal argument.
