GUILLOTINE RUMORS HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE AT LEAST 1984

In Response To: 'The Deadliest Mistake The West Has Ever Made' - Guillotines, FEMA Camps And Islam - Muslim Woman Issues Dire Warning To America (NaturalWisdom)

Hi, NaturalWisdom -

Thanks. :) The rumor of government-stockpiled guillotines has been on Internet in one form or another since the early 1990s, and according to Rayelan it's been around since at least 1984:

FEAR MONGERING AND RUMOR MILL NEWS
Rayelan -- Saturday, 14-Oct-2000 17:49:08

More recently (about 2009) there was a statement about it attributed to Ted Gunderson (now deceased). The number of alleged guillotines cited is almost always 30,000, though sometimes it has been 100,000.

The information has always been attributed to some honorable individual source (e.g., a young Army Ranger) who's not available to be questioned and to back up the statement.

The rumor sometimes mentions "legislation passed in Georgia". It appears there was a proposal put forward in the Georgia legislature to make execution by guillotine an option for death row prisoners who might want to donate their organs - but the proposal never even came up for a vote.

At least one rumor includes an idea that the guillotines are 6 feet tall. Unless these are "new and improved", perhaps spring-loaded, that seems unlikely. Twelve to fifteen feet seems to have been the norm in days gone by.

Bottom line, for me, is that I find this particular rumor has no basis in fact or way to be confirmed, and current versions of the rumor stand a good chance of being just a restatement of the original one, whenever it first appeared.

Many question the reliability of Snopes.com and UrbanLegends.about.com, but here's pretty good coverage of the rumor by David Emery of Urban Legends, updated in 2015:

Did the U.S. Government Purchase 30,000 Guillotines? No.
