The Department of Justice has drafted legislation that would expedite capital punishment for those found guilty of mass killings, according to a top Trump administration official.
Vice President Mike Pences chief of staff Marc Short told reporters Monday that the veeps policy team has been working with Attorney General William Barr on the death penalty bill, which will likely be part of a larger gun control package the White House will try to sell to Congress amid a wave of shooting massacres, including the latest rampage in Texas that killed seven people.eVice President Mike Pences chief of staff Marc Short told reporters Monday that the veeps policy team has been working with Attorney General William Barr on the death penalty bill, which will likely be part of a larger gun control package the White House will try to sell to Congress amid a wave of shooting massacres, including the latest rampage in Texas that killed seven people.

That’s a great damn idea.
Three hots and a cot replaced by three hots and a shot?
It’s probably impractical but I’d like to also see a news blackout. Whether they taken dead or alive, their identities should never be disclosed to deny them the notoriety many seek. Call them John Doe #X and execute them after a very speedy trial.
It won’t stop them from killing, some engage in suicide-by-cop antics and some even kill themselves at the scene.
But there is no sense in paying to keep them alive for 60 years or trying to rehabilitate the criminally insane who were identified as criminally insane before they ever picked up a gun.
And yet in Arkansas, some minors who engaged in a deadly school rampage shooting were released by age 18 (one recently died in a car crash).
Great idea, I hope it goes through but it’s likely just VP Pence kicking it up a notch to dispel his “weak” image.
Personally I’d rather a stronger VP pick for ‘20, like Allen West.
This won’t stop any of them.
Many of these shooters ultimately kill themselves before capture. They go in full aware it’s a suicide mission. So I’m not sure how increasing the punishment will have any effect at all on this.
starting with nidal, who is still wasting oxygen TEN YEARS after Ft. Hood.
Works for me. Personally I think police should execute the shooter on the spot.
Lets apply it to the other mass shooters too. You know the ones that never make the news or the talking points. If we applied this punishment to the FBI definition of mass shooters (gangs and run of the mill criminals who shoot three or more ) we would certainly cut down on overall gun homicides which would leave the grabbers w/o any conflated statistics to make their case for confiscation.
No bed, just lead.
“Thats a great damn idea.”
That’s the problem with it and other reasonable proposals PDJT will make in these negotiations: the DemonShits will agree to nothing short of ultimate, total confiscation, especially while PDJT is President. Hence, there’s likely to be little or no legislation.
Excellent idea, it should be expanded to all murderers.
It will not make any difference. Many of the shooters kill themselves on the scene or it’s suicide by cop. If fact, I would think that most of them would be more inclined to fight to death and start wearing suicide vests which might make things worse.
I don’t think that there would be any way of concealing their identities because any such legal action is a matter of public record. Allowing the state to sentence someone to death without revealing the name and reason for the sentence is not a very smart precedent.
On sight works for me, if the person is on video committing the acts.
Just line them up and shoot the legs out first, then hands and arms, the stomach area, then the chest followed in a minute or so by the head.
Make it as grisly as you can, and televise it.
Do it with a clearly visible easy to read question that reads?
Wanna be next?
Anyone that objects is free to line up with the perp and share their fate as far as I am concerned.
there. fixed it.
It won’t. But it will make the sheep feel good.
Just as the Red Flag Laws.
As the Red Flag Laws work their poison by disarming the public the sheep will be bleating and baaing happily in the knowledge that their Government is protecting them.
I have a better idea:
Re-instate the second amendment in full, and fire, fine and imprison any governmental official who infringes it.
THAT will put a swift halt to violent crime, and save lives.
