Trump pushes capital punishment in wake of shootings



President Donald John Trump called for speeding capital punishment in the wake of two mass shootings this weekend in El Paso and Dayton.

Fox News reported, "President Trump called Monday for reforms at the intersection of mental health and gun laws -- including so-called 'red flag laws' to take guns from those deemed a public risk -- in the wake of back-to-back mass shootings over the weekend that left at least 29 people dead."

The mentally ill already are restricted from buying guns.

Buried in Paragraph 8 was the guts of his proposal.

It said, "The president also called for cultural changes, citing violent video games. Further, Trump said he has directed the Justice Department to propose legislation ensuring that those commit hate crimes and mass murders 'face the death penalty and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively, and without years of needless delay.'"

Now we get to the specifics. President Trump wants to empty death row the right way. Executions work as a deterrent to crime only if they are swift. 20-year delays make a joke of such sentences.

He just made them an offer they cannot accept. Any deal Democrats and their RINO friends want to make will have to include hanging killers.

The president tiptoed around Fake Conservatives who want him to cave on gun control.

Sir Rupert Murdoch's New York Post today called for banning guns. I guess he figured out that being a conservative newspaper in Gotham is a poor marketing move and wants the Post to go back to serving subway socialism.

The president tied capital punishment to any further restrictions on private gun ownership. No deal will be made until after the 2020 election. This gives us the opportunity to dump some more RINOs and Democrats which would make a second term more productive for the president.

Meanwhile, Cate Cauguiran reported, "At least six people were killed and another 43 wounded in shootings across Chicago this past weekend, police said. City leaders and community activists have planned to address the deadly and violent past couple of days."

Apparently the routine mass shootings in Chicago and the worse-than-Afghanistan slaughter in Baltimore bother no one except me.

Chicago has strict gun control. It doesn't work. Democrats know this. They don't care.

Instead of calling them mass shootings, let's just call them a Weekend In Chicago. Imagine a news report of a gunman who turned a Walmart in El Paso into a Weekend In Chicago.

Maybe then it will cause civic leaders in Chicago to finally give a damn about what is happening to young black men in the Elijah Cummings sections of that city.

UPDATE: Let's go over this again for the slow-learners among the trolls. Calling me names gets your comment deleted. That's the TOS. Show respect or buzz off.

      Shall God's blood be thus shed by all creatures?

    2. So, Nonny, you're smarter than God? Prove it. Create a universe and everything in it. You have 7 days.

    3. You are confusing "smart" with power.

      The power to create is not the same as "smart".

      Now, are you asserting that "smart" is a quality that god applied when utilizing the power that god possesses to create what we experience as our existence?

    4. So what Nonny is saying is that in his feeble mind he is smarter than GOD when in fact he is dumber than dirt.

    5. No, jerry, that is what you are saying.

      The question presented has either a yes or no initial answer.

      And the question was, and is, presented to poopsie.

      There has been no request for an opinion addressed to jerry.

      Unless poopsie requests thusly.

      A clear question has been posed and presented to poopsie.

      That question awaits an answer, from poopsie.

  3. I still favor having these cretins that survive arrest being declared "Unlawful Enemy Combatants" and being shiped off to GTMO to face a Military Tribunal.

    I will admit, however, the Ohio shooting was handled as well as could have been.

  5. Chicago has strict gun control. It doesn't work.

    And Chicago has strict drug control that doesn't work.

    The Left knows drug control doesn't work but still wants gun control.

    The Right knows gun control wouldn't work but still loves drug control and pretends its working

    Intellectual schizophrenics on both sides.

  6. ensuring that those commit hate crimes and mass murders

    All crimes are hate crimes! Stop using and validating the terms the Leftists define.

    Just like all guns are assault weapons.

    1. Naw.

      Not even close.

      You know not what hate is.

      Fear you know.

      Hate, you know not.

      Take your simplification amplication and apply it to what you know, Fear.

      Then toss back as many double shots of Jack as needed and sleep it off.

      And when you awake, with aching hangover, know that you do not hate the feeling, you merely do not like it.

  7. Here's a very well thought-out take on how such scum should be TREATED at Gitmo:

    Unfortunately, real, old-fashioned British "Drawing and Quartering< though deserved, might fit even 1776 definitions of "Cruel & Unusual".

    1. The obamanation was quite an accomplished crew of inciters of violence.

      The testament to Americans' resolve to not be baited into uncivilized, savage activities cannot be undervalued.

      The obamanation crews continue to persist in their maleviolent activities.

      The obamanation minions even have an abundant supply of females persisting in these maleviolent activities.

      The obamanation can take FULL credit for ALL violences which persist within our Nation.

      And for many violences which continue, unabated, thruout the globe.

      The clintonistas were merely grafting scum.

      The obamanation cabal is evil.

  9. I am opposed to the death penalty. I think it far more cruel, inhumane, - and just - to keep a heinous criminal confined in an 8 x 10 cage the rest of his/her days than grant a merciful release from this world.

    1. If you could keep them confined. Unfortunately there are too many bleeding heart liberals who would parole them after 20 to 30 years.

  10. Just boggles the mind that NO ONE of national import, such as President Trump, Pence or maybe Mcconnel in the senate ever points out the fact, that mass shootings happen EVERY WEEKEND in Chicago, with the most restrictive gun laws (new york a close second) and the media refuses to make any noise about that. Just sickening.....

  16. I firmly believe in capital punishment. If you take a life - and not in self defense - your life is forfeit. Why should society pay $60,000 + per year to keep you alive and in prison? The sure and certain knowledge of the death penalty may save more lives than we think. - Elric

  18. Easy fix to the problem. Concealed carry! These shootings always take place in gun-free zones. Solution-encourage concealed carry for responsible citizens, and insist on proper training, maybe even periodically, to renew the license.
