In the 20th century, over 170 million people were annihilated by their own governments after they were disarmed and by disarming them, it wasn't about the guns, it was about control.
This week, Jan Morgan, an AP Award Winning Investigative TV Journalist, Conservative Columnist, and founder of JanMorganMedia felt it was time once again to re-released her narrative documentary, “Innocents Betrayed: The True Story of Gun Control Worldwide” and produced by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) on her Facebook page and her website, on how governments have historically deprived people of firearms and then, wiped them from the face of the earth.
While the school shooting by Adam Lanza in Newtown, CT has liberals, President Obama, and anti-gun organizations in a frenzy to enact more gun control or a bill by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who plans to introduce sweeping gun-control legislation at the beginning of the congressional session in January that would severely limit what firearms law-abiding Americans can own, Jan Morgan said, “This documentary effectively shatters gun control myths and fallacies. Owning a firearm is not a privilege – it’s a basic right. In fact, it’s the basic right to protect yourself and your loved ones.”
“Throughout History, there has been a disturbing pattern: sooner or later, often sooner than later, disarmed populations become the hapless victims of tyrannical governments and criminals. The right to own a weapon is one that is usually conquered in the aftermath of centuries of suffering and genocide. Today, we tend to forget that.”
“Yet, the last 100 odd years were undoubtedly the most brutal of all, in what concerns organized violence against deliberately disarmed populations. This is what Innocents Betrayed documents on how innocents are constantly betrayed and brutalized by gun control,” Morgan said.
The documentary takes viewers though historic footage, much of it very graphic, on genocidal examples of regimes that disarmed their people, then murdered them. The documentary presents examples from the Russian death camps and starvation campaign, the Communist Chinese death regime, Germany’s Nazi Holocaust, the Cambodian, Rwandan, Armenian, Guatemalan, and Ugandan genocides, and other situations where not owning a firearm cost citizens their lives.
Another point of the documentary profiles the myths that disarmament of Americans could never happen. However, in the film, history is presented that it did happen to a group of people, black Americans who became slaves and were not allowed to own firearms and taken advantage of through hangings and killings.
