The madness of two mass shootings within just 13 hours of one another needs to be dealt with in a decisive manner (“America’s deadly weekend: The guns,” Aug. 5). I hope Congress will pass a law that those who commit domestic terrorism will automatically be charged in federal court for their crimes. If found guilty of a capital offense, then they should be taken to the basement of the courthouse and have the sentence carried out immediately.
No need for appeals, no lengthy stay on death row and no risk of escape. Giving them fifteen minutes to live once they are sentenced is more time than they gave their victims.
In these desperate times we are well overdue in finally giving criminals the justice they deserve.
