Death Penalty


A gubernatorial hopeful says he will push for a mandatory death penalty for those involved in fatal school shootings. Republican state Senator Scott Wagner spoke before the Pennsylvania Press Club Monday, and promised to pursue capital punishment for anyone convicted of a school shooting, in which a death results. Wagner also said he would not promote stricter gun control laws, but would examine the current regulations. Wagner harshly criticized Democratic Governor Tom Wolf, whom he hopes to face in the November election.
