This would be unconstitutional under the SCOTUS' 1977 Woodson v. North Carolina decision.

The cop-killer is becoming far rarer due to cops wearing bullet-proof vests. The crook shoots ineffectively at the cop's lungs or heart, and the cop gets the second shot at the crook's chest or lungs and then gets off perhaps several more shots (cops do overkill on those who attack them), and the crook dies. The crook tries to aim for the cop's head, and the cop shoots for the crook's lungs or chest...and the crook dies.

People who try to kill cops end up shot to death, and would-be cop-killers never face capital punishment because they are already dead before they can be arrested and tried. In effect, one of the largest classes of people who used to get executed, cop-killers, are fading as part of Death-Row inmates.

The future looks extremely grim.

There are no more free countries.

No country has religious freedom, free speech, gun rights, or protection from warrantless searches, forfeiture, indefinite detention, torture, or extrajudicial assassination.

You might have slightly more freedom in Ireland or Switzerland, but soon the whole world will look like North Korea.

People in Venezuela, China, Vietnam, and Cuba seem to deal with tyranny by just ignoring it and living their lives, but making plans are difficult because everything is illegal and you can be arrested at anytime.
