    If money is your concern it's much cheaper to just lock them up.

    From what I read, it cannot be applied.

    We are not talking about vengeance but protecting the society from those who would kill for no reason.

    In other words people cannot be held responsible for their actions due to their undeveloped brains.

    And the guns, that's easy. We take them all and if you show up with one we use a flamethrower on you.
    You do realize that most guns are used responsibly and it is the user not the gun that is the problem?

    Yes, and I also realize what a gun is for.

    Yes, it is because of the appeals process.

    And that is an important process that should never be denied any citizen. That would give the government power to kill at will, and leave the innocent with no avenues.

    No, but it certainly kills the skeet, if you any good that is.

    Does skeet taste just like chicken as well?
