Former State of Tennessee House Representatives (R-Lookout Mountain)
Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
"Executions do not have to cost that much. We could hang them and re-use the rope. No cost! Or we could use firing squads and ask for volunteer firing squad members who would provide their own guns and ammunition. Again, no cost."
