According to Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit, a Missouri lawmaker wishes to bring back firing squads as a method of execution.
I think this is a bad idea. Not because I object to people who deserve it being shot. No, the real reason is that the firing squad is a military execution method. It should be reserved for military executions.
We should hang them instead. I’d be willing to go with guillotine if there the condemned expressed a desire to “spill his blood on the ground” because he felt his Mormon faith required it. But a firing squad is too dignified.
