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.”
