Skip to comments.Trump Admin. Preps Proposal to Execute Mass Shooters Faster (Gun Control)
Posted on 09/04/2019 3:27:13 PM PDT by Roman_War_Criminal
he Trump administration has prepared draft legislation to expedite capital cases against mass shooters, it announced Monday.
Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, told reporters to expect the legislation as part of a larger gun control proposal from the White House, Fox News reports. The total legislative package is expected after Congress returns from its August recess on September 9th.
The announcement comes after a mass shooting in Odessa, Texas, in which a gunman killed five and injured 22 people. On Sunday, President Donald Trump called the shooter "another very sick person," and said that shootings were "a big problem. It's a mental problem."
Short did not share further details, but the legislation has been in the works for at least a month. In early August, following the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Trump called for the implementation of a federal death penalty for hate crimes, adding that it should "be delivered quickly, decisively, and without years of needless delay."

The expedited death penalty provisions will be repealed, but the gun control provisions will remain. You can bet on it.
Who gets to define "hate crimes"?
Does the proposal pull these cases into federal court?
They should be buried in SuperMax in CO for the rest of their life - day after day alone, in a cell, let out for thirty minutes a day seeing only the sky; execution is too good for them - going to sleep nice and comfy.
Why should mass killings be treated differently than mass shootings?
Trump is on dangerous ground. There are only two issues which I will not yield one inch no matter who is president. Those are gun control and abortion.
I am certain I am not the only one.
Still won’t stop crazy assclowns.
Think about it.
Barbaric? Yes. Effective? Probably.
So are they going to elevate murder by mass shooting to a federal crime only? What then happens to the state charges of murder? Our namby-pamby bleeding hearts won’t allow the DP anymore here in Washington State.
I can see states claim an additional sanctuary status case where if you do this in one state then make it to a non-DP state they will afford you sanctuary. Much like how Mexico won’t deport criminals to the US unless the US promises not to charge them with the DP.
Gosh. Trump is so mean.
day after day alone, in a cell, let out for thirty minutes a day seeing only the sky; execution is too good for them - going to sleep nice and comfy.

Not a bad idea but it does mean we have to feed and protect them for the rest of their miserable lives.
Maybe we should follow the French and their Devils Island project...just find a large, fertile island and drop them off and let them fend for themselves..the strong will survive ...
Guess more of an Australia project but at least make it so WE don’t have to food, clothe & house them.
I suggested in another thread that a far more effective means would be to extend federal protection to those who kill mass killers.
That is, it wouldn’t matter if they were an LEO or civilian, only if they killed the killer would both any criminal or civil actions against them would be *exclusively* in federal court, with very favorable terms.
This means that no local or state government could abuse them, as long as they *killed*, not just wounded, the mass killer.
It wouldn’t even matter if they were not allowed to own or use a gun. If they killed a mass killer, they would be under federal legal protection for everything surrounding that event.
Basically federal legal hunting season for mass killers.
Without it, murders who deserve to die are ON OUR DIME IN PRISON longer than the lives of judges,witnesses and jurors they outlive.
Sirhan Bishara Sirhan is a Palestinian with Jordanian citizenship who mortally wounded United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California, on June 5, 1968; Kennedy died the following day. Sirhan was convicted of murder and is serving a life sentence at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego County, California.
((He is 5 feet 4 inches tall and 75 years old.))
I read where executing a killer costs almost as much as a year in prison. Being alone with no one to talk to, in a small cell the rest of your life - living or really not living but just existing is worse i think.
If we started publicly executing drug dealers I would support this.
I agree with you, I would prefer to be dead than be housed in a cell for 23 hours a day.
I think the cost for execution is MUCH more than a life in prison. But most of it is due to the prolonged legal battles, reviews, requests, more reviews, hearings, etc. A bunch of lawyers at $500 an hour over twenty plus years adds up!
It would seem to me that with these mass shootings the perpetrator is usually pretty clear who it is (conspiracies not with-standing). So I would like to think a short trial could be expected. (Aren’t most of them killed during the response anyway?)
So what Federal laws are broken, assuming the mass shooting does not involve a post office, military base, or National Park? Murder is usually a state crime. Kill a bunch of people in Texas and Texas will kill you right backeventually. Kill a bunch of people in California or any state that has abolished the death penalty and you’ll live out your life in prison.
Baloney sandwiches and mac ‘n cheese will slowly kill them off anyway. Nothing but a restrictive life until you die.
“... It’s a mental problem.”
No chit! Mental problems call for a script for psychotropic drugs that are known to cause suicide and homicidal actions.
Please tell me WHY no one is calling out the pharma company’s that are producing the psych drugs that warn of CAUSING this type of behaviour?
Hate crime is taxes , ie a people hating itself it makes government king.
FBI agents should then get the death penalty for promoting their sht with murder such as Ruby Ridge, but given government is God movement in the federal and Congress, it will not be read that way
