Helps if you know the punishment

Just like to put this out there to Mr. Quinn.


Your tough gun laws won't do anything when someone gets caught shooting someone. All it does is put them in a cell for life.

You know growing up if I was punished, I got a spanking. Sometimes it was with the belt. Today's society has no fear in punishment. If kids were killed here in Illinois, what outcome would the shooter pay? Get sent to his room for life.

It needs to be enforced that if you are guilty of capital crime, you should have to pay a capital price. What would be justice for kids killed and coming face to face as a parent with the killer in a courtroom?

I know if I were a parent, my opinion here of what punishment would be death by injection is too good for them. But we don't have that. Mr. Quinn would rather put him in a cell and let taxpayers house, feed and let them carry on with the rest of their life. No scare in punishment. When growing up, I would be afraid to get in trouble. I know what punishment would be.
