I'm opposed to capital punishment by whatever means but stoning to death is absolutely barbaric. Those governments that allow it should hang their heads in shame. Thank you for publicising their evil.

It's kinda interesting how hanging is apparently the most well known method

Gruesome. Are there any states that are still using the electric chair or gas chambers? I know that it is possible under the law, but are they actually doing it? The U.S. only had 22 executions in 2019...

OK, the US hasn't used gas in an execution since 1999, even though it is approved as a backup to lethal injection in several states, so I will change the wording above. Also, Oklahoma recently approved nitrogen asphyxiation as their primary method, but it hasn't been used yet.

The electric chair is similarly allowed as a backup method in (I believe) 8 states. It has only recently made a comeback in Tennessee over concerns about their lethal injection protocol potentially causing pain to those executed. The chair has been used 5 times in that state over the past few years.
