In a speech at a South Carolina Tea Party convention earlier this month, gun activist Jan Morgan warned that tightening American gun laws could lead to genocide.
“Gun control has never been about guns. It’s about control,” said Morgan, who runs the group Armed American Woman. “In the twentieth century, folks, 170 million people have been annihilated by their own governments after being disarmed. So, don’t let anybody tell you that disarming America is going to make us a safer place.” The myth that gun control led to the genocides in Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Union has been thoroughly debunked.
