In the last couple of days, this story has really been gaining steam. This is one of those stories that seems to appear out of nowhere. The video below outlines one such version of it. According to the rumors, the United States government recently purchased 30,000 guillotines and is storing 15,000 in Georgia and 15,000 in Montana.
Is it true? Well, gosh we don’t know. But we can tell you this…much like the FEMA camp rumors, this is one of those stories that has cut through the others and risen to the top. In our experience, once a story like this gains that much steam, there is at least some truth to it. How far it goes no one knows.
So why guillotines? Well, while it may seem counterintuitive to a massive martial law-esque mass execution scenario, the truth is that the guillotine is a very effective killing machine. It works fast, sends a stark message, and tends to grab the attention of those that the government thinks need their attention grabbed. Do you know how many heads the government could cut off in a hour? Multiply that by 30,000 strategically placed guillotines, and the government could cull the population and end an uprising in minutes, not hours. Word will get around fast when the heads start rolling.
