A Wyoming Senator Bruce Burns wants to bring back the firing squad to execute condemned state inmates if constitutional problems or other issues ever prevented the state from using lethal injection.

According to Senator Burns, current state law calls for using a gas chamber if lethal injection is unavailable but Wyoming doesn’t have a gas chamber. A firing squad would cheaper than having to build a gas chamber.

Utah and Oklahoma are the only states currently using firing squads for the death penalty.
