After a botched execution I had heard of firing squads being brought back, doubt it will happen but never know. Someone told me only one of the people in the squad actually has a loaded gun, is that true? Supposed to make it to where none on the squad knows who actually killed the guy. Makes no sense to me as one would know due to the recoil. The other would just flinch really bad! I'd also figue a high caliber rifle would be used. If six guys shot someone with something in a .30 caliber type rifle would the person on the bullet end not be cut in half or blown apart really bad? I don't have a problem with it but it seems awful messy. Interested in this so thanks in advance for the replies. Rancher Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
