Of the 35 states with the death penalty on the books, Utah is the only one to use the firing squad as a method of execution since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated capital punishment in 1976.

Two men have died in a hail of bullets since that decision: Gary Gilmore, on Jan. 17, 1977 - after famously uttering the last words, "Let's do it" - and John Albert Taylor on Jan. 26, 1996.

Oklahoma is the only other state that considers a firing squad an acceptable option, but by law would only use it if lethal injection was deemed unconstitutional. The state has never used the method.

What next? The guillotine? Public lynching? Here we are in the 21st Century, and we still have to debate the old "Death Penalty" question. Crime fits the punishment.

Do the inmates get to pick the method of their death? Because I might pick firing squad just to feel like I was a cowboy or something. LOL

I know it's not really funny, but I have to find humor in everything or I go nuts. Smile
