    Survivor of Communist Cuba Delivers Impassioned 2nd Amendment Defense: ‘A Dictatorial Regime Will Destroy the Country’

    Apr. 8, 2013 3:33pm Erica Ritz

    A man who escaped communist Cuba gave an impassioned defense of the rights of his adopted country Friday, saying “only [his] death” will stop him from speaking out about freedom and the Second Amendment, which he says are one in the same.

    testifying in Salem, Oregon, on proposed gun control legislation, Manuel Martinez grew visibly emotional when describing all he has seen.

    After describing how “malicious” individuals “masquerading as Democrats” came into power into power in Cuba in 1957, Martinez described how they went to work disarming the citizenry and established a bloody regime.

    Pointing at the lawmakers arguing for stricter gun control, Martinez said:

    “I’ve been through it. I’ve been there. You people don’t know what freedom is because you never lost it! You haven’t been tortured. You haven’t been [sic] assassinations. You haven’t been — mothers begging for the life of their son not to be killed because the only reason is they want is to be free. And they killed the mothers, and they killed the son.”

    Ten Bears: It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men.

    "You don't know what freedom is." lessons from not so long ago and not so far away.
    A regime comes to power amidst irrational jubilation. The rationale becomes clear only when it's too late.
    Americans understood the right of self-preservation as permitting a citizen to repel force by force
    when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.
