FILE - In this June 18, 2010, file photo, the firing squad execution chamber at the Utah State Prison in Draper, Utah, is shown. In the wake of a bungled execution in Oklahoma last month, a Utah lawmaker wants to resurrect firing squads as a method of execution in his state. Rep. Paul Ray, a Republican from Clearfield, says firing squads would be a quick and humane way to put someone to death as lawsuits and drug shortages have hampered lethal injections in recent years. Ray plans to introduce his proposal during Utah’s next legislative session in January. Utah stopped allowing death-row inmates to choose execution by firing squad after 2004. Several inmates sentenced before that time have opted for firing squad executions but are appealing their sentences. Utah last used the method in 2010, when a firing squad of five police officers with .30-caliber Winchester rifles executed Ronnie Lee Gardner. (AP Photo/Trent Nelson, Pool, File) less
