Mary Ann you missed my sarcastic aim at Becky clearly , I gave up my membership back in 2001. I personally saw a change in the mission of the NRA , and the body count climbs and NOTHING changes it makes me sick as a gun owner a responsible gun owner. Who wants to see reasons reforms. No more senseless carnage.
Sorry ts no humor left, five dead how many have to die?? We are the only developed country who has this problem. Ts I w would start with military grade assault weapons no reason for anything that shoots rounds per seconds in your home. Unless you're hunting humans. That would be a good start BAN ALL ASSULT WEAPONS we let the ban expire under Bush bring it back. Next would be biotechnology for triggers ,crazy people should be precluded from OWNING, if you have ever had an issue PTSD would stop you from OWNING. Yes I know what that means but, If it keeps us safer.
I don’t claim to have the solution here. I am just posting this as a suggestion…
What this country needs is a very strong deterrent. I am suggesting that Congress pass a law which would include a new category for the death penalty. It would have a special clause for “crimes against humanity“. This would be the death penalty with an added twist. Anyone shooting up defenseless people en masse would be subject to the following, after the sentencing:
1) Death by Guillotine
2) Execution in a public setting, perhaps in a football stadium. No charge and nobody under 21 allowed.
3) Swift justice, to occur no more than 14 days after sentencing.
4) No appeals.
With this kind of fate looming over one of these shooters heads, which includes the public humiliation, a strong deterrent will be in place. Of course there is a good possibility that the shooter will never make it to court, but that is another topic.
Everyone complains that nothing is being done. Let’s do this.
