Dick Cheney can still hunt, despite almost killing someone. SHould he have received the death penalty (as it is possible that the could still kill other people through irresponsible gun use)? At the very least, should he be stripped of his right to possess? After all, lives are at stake and he has already demonstrated irresponsibilty when it comes to firearms. You appeared to indicate it was not enough since you brought up the status of two of his victims to elevate your initial question.
