The wrong injection method and material is being used.

A .45 caliber slug to the forehead, right above the bridge of the nose, from a rifle at 20 paces is cheap, certainly effective, and death is pretty much instantaneous.

So, you are all for a prolonged, painful execution.

Perhaps that method should be tried on you.

At least my method is quick and painless.

You, on the other hand, are obviously a sadist.

There's always the guillotine.

No botched executions with them.

They could always give them a heroin overdose - blissful death but they might become drug addicts you know.

That's crazy talk. I don't know anyone who owns a .45 rifle. You're on the right track though. Take a 12ga shotgun with three inch slugs and put the barrel in the dirtbag's mouth. I guarantee he's dead before his brains see the light of day. Cheap and effective.

A few years back a gunsmith named Reid Coffield built a .45 bolt action carbine on a Mauser action with a kit. It used GI 1911 Mags and a replacement barrel (supplied with the kit). He explained the procedure in an article in a commemorative edition of Shotgun News that highlighted the Mauser rifle in all it's models/years and where they were made and by which country. It was put out several years ago. I think back issues might be available from the Shotgun News archives. It looked pretty nice and used a popular,available ammo/caliber. It was pretty compact with an overall length of around 30",with a barrel length of 14-16 inches.

What exactly ARE these "problems" with lethal injections? Did the sentenced party NOT die? If so then it was a "botched" execution. Otherwise.........

Should change the classification "on death row" to "in the guinea pig cage".

Sneaky, I think we've pissed off the liberals that would rather coddle criminals as opposed to punishing them.

BTW, extensive research has proven a life sentence without parole is actually cheaper than a death sentence due to all the appeals a death sentence generates. 1 Appeal can cost more than the cost of housing a prisoner for 50 years.

I still think a bullet to the brain pan is an effective remedy though.

Is that all life is about to you is killing people with guns? I never understood why you people love guns so much. I know plenty of people that dont have guns and they have good lives without them. Nobody wants to coddle criminals,but nobody want their child killed in 3rd period class either or while at a movie by some nut who loves guns more than life

Stay on topic. The subject is capital punishment, not a forum for you to piss and moan about your seething hatred for the constitution and the second amendment.

So, those in favor of capital punishment, are in favor of an expanded government, one with the right and duty to kill those people it doesn't like for whatever reason? You might like bush's finger on the trigger, aimed at those he doesn't like, but are you equally as comfortable with Obama?

Take your anti-gun rant over to one of the gun control forums.

In the meanwhile:

"Just before Joseph Wood's execution, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals denied his motion that he has a right to know what's in the injection.

Chief Judge Alex Kozinski issued a dissenting opinion, calling the use of drugs a 'misguided effort to mask the brutality of executions by making them look serene and peaceful.'

He said using medicine meant to heal the body was doomed to fail, and we should revert back to more primitive methods like the guillotine, electric chair, gas chamber, and firing squads because they're more accurate and their sole purpose is to destroy. "

Umm, guns were brought up as a quick and affordable way to dispatch a convicted criminal set to die. You're the one who tried to twist this logical alternative to lethal injection into a looney liberal taking point, anti-gun rant.
