DOJ Proposes Legislation Punishing Killers, Not Gun Owners
Every time the right kind of shooter (a white guy who isn't living in Chicago, Baltimore or Detroit) shoots people, Democrats and the media howl that something must be done. Action must be taken. Laws must be passed.
The something, the action and the laws suspend the Bill of Rights and never actually punish the killer, but random people whose only crime is owning a gun.
Or, as Biden put it, a magazine with more than one bullet.
The DOJ and Pence's office have a unique idea. How about punishing the actual killer, instead of Bob in Vermont who didn't do anything wrong?
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has reportedly drafted legislation to expedite the execution of convicted mass murderers as a response to multiple recent deadly mass shootings.
Vice President Mike Pence has been working with Attorney General William Barr on the proposal, Marc Short, Pence’s chief of staff, said Monday, according to Bloomberg.
The bill comes after the DOJ announced in July that it would resume capital punishment for the first time in two decades.
That means a mass shooter would know that he shouldn't expect to spend the rest of his life in jail enjoying his celebrity and fame.
So, obviously, the Left would be opposed to it.
What if Nikolas Cruz didn't get to spend the rest of his life eating ice cream at taxpayer expense? Funny how the Parkland lobby doens't have much to say about that.
