    years in a safe and secure prison where they get education and rehab so they can become productive citizens when they are released.

    Individual cases need different sentences.  That is what a real judicial system does.

      I assumed the diarist language was hyperbole/exaggeration as we don't actually carry out that type of punishment as far as I know.

      But as a hypothetical, what if the person sold weapons to someone they knew were likely to use these weapons in a violent manner(i.e. drug cartel) and they did - could this not be considered  aiding and abetting to murder? That is in some states I believe is subject to death penalty.

      For the record, I don't support death penalty because of the biased manner in which it is applied and the potential for even one innocent person to be murdered by the state.
