OK, apparently we are never going to stop the floodtide of illegal gun purchases in America.
Bullets evidently will be zinging through the not-so-friendly skies of the good old USA forever and a day.
Let it be.
So let us turn instead to severe, immediate punishment for anyone caught shooting somebody or having an illegal gun in their possession.
Immediate burning at the stake. No trial. Just matches and a small fire.
If the fire is too big, death occurs first by asphyxia rather than damage done by the flames.
In a small fire the victim suffers until the end when death occurs either because of blood loss or heatstroke — both of which can take hours.
That should deter a few gun heretics from scratching their itchy trigger fingers.
