Was Georgia the first state to pass the guillotine provision.

Georgia House of Representatives - 1995/1996 Sessions
HB 1274 - Death penalty; guillotine provisions

Code Sections - 17-10-38/ 17-10-44
A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT

  1- 1  To amend Article 2 of Chapter 10 of Title 17 of the Official
  1- 2  Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to the death penalty
  1- 3  generally, so as to provide a statement of legislative
  1- 4  policy; to provide for death by guillotine; to provide for
  1- 5  applicability; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other
  1- 6  purposes. 

    SECTION 1. 

  1- 8  The General Assembly finds that while prisoners condemned to
  1- 9  death may wish to donate one or more of their organs for
  1-10  transplant, any such desire is thwarted by the fact that
  1-11  electrocution makes all such organs unsuitable for
  1-12  transplant. The intent of the General Assembly in enacting
  1-13  this legislation is to provide for a method of execution
  1-14  which is compatible with the donation of organs by a
  1-15  condemned prisoner.

I see no actual evidence from your link. Just a bunch of speculation and claims with nothing to back it with.

A simple link to the actual law would be nice. Not links to people claiming it has passed.

If it passed and was signed as a law, it shouldn't be to difficult to find it.
(I already looked, and there wasn't anything to find)

Ok Wolf. Sorry I jumped the gun on this one. Nothing to worry about here. I tripped, dusted off and moving on.

​No worries.

It is posted all over the internet, but I just went straight to Georgia Law to see if I had missed something.

However, while it may not be a law right now, when/if the time comes to drop the hammer, legislation like this will be passed within a day.

No question in my mind about that, and it will happen on a Federal level.
