Bill Lant has new conspiracy theory, and it reminds him of Hitler

Rep. Bill Lant (R-Pineville) tries "very hard not to be a conspiracy theorist." Or so he says in his most recent newsletter.

Of course, he goes on to lament the "decisions [...] to teach much less history than we used to." And posing questions like, "when governments are doing the same things that have led to World Wars in the past doesn't it make sense to question their decisions?"

It gets even better when Lant expresses his fear of the government taking everyone's guns away.

Our government is attempting to confiscate guns from elderly people on the premise that they are unable to handle their finances so they shouldn't be able to own guns. What? Did someone add that to the 2nd amendment when we weren't looking? Gun confiscation of any kind is wrong! This is the kind of stuff that Hitler and Mussolini did.

Hmm and he said he was trying hard not to be a conspiracy theorist?
