Mississippi Is Strongly Considering Allowing Execution by Firing Squad

  
Mississippi is considering the use of firing squads as an option for capital punishment as House Bill 638 makes its way to Republican Gov. Phil Bryant, the Hattiesburg American reports.
The bill, “To Revise The Methods By Which The Death Penalty May Be Carried Out; And For Related Purposes,” also includes lethal injection, nitrogen gas, and electrocution as means of execution to be considered before firing squads, in a line of succession if one is ruled unconstitutional.
