Former Republican Chairman Chris Healy says the debate over gun violence and mental health is missing a critical component: a call to restore the death penalty:
… can anyone say the words \”death penalty?\” If Adam Lanza hadn\’t killed himself after his murder spree, these same Democrats, assuming Lanza was ruled sane, would have spent his life in jail – on the public\’s dime. Republicans can learn from the Democrats playbook. In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, the D\’s have resurrected their assault weapon ban. Where is the GOP cry to repeal the death penalty ban? The death penalty was created for those who\’s guilt is without doubt.
