Communism Survivor Explains Why America’s 2nd Amendment Must Not Be Infringed

By The Right Scoop
Some of the strongest voices in opposition to our 2nd Amendment rights being infringed upon by so-called gun-control legislation are those voices who have lived under communism.

This man, Manuel Martinez, escaped the brutal regime in Cuba in 1954 and now warns us what could happen if we allow this freedom to be infringed upon in any way.

Manuel Martinez stated:

In 1957 a Revolution … individuals … malicious individuals, masquerading as Democrats, revolutionaries, established a regime … a dictatorial regime … in my nation. Called Communism, Socialism, Stalinism, Marxism, and whatever other named -ism you want to put on it. The reason why it was done was to take away the guns from the People. The right of the People to wear guns. That is a God-given Right. It’s not given by anybody. It’s not given by any group. It’s the same thing as freedom, which is a God-given Right. And no one, absolutely no one, has the authority to take it away. To cease to defend the Second Amendment, and my God-given Right of freedom, will cease only with my death.

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 wanted to be free. And they killed the mothers and they killed the son.

  • I have friends that lived in Poland under Soviet Rule. They see a direct connection between Obama and the Soviet leadership. Everything for them and nothing for the people. They also say we will be screwed if we give up our guns they say it is our one chance to put the marxist down. They should know.

  • What happened Dec 29, 1890? Ask the people at Wounded Knee, oops, they were disarmed and murdered by the government for being alive. The man from Cuba has it right, it’s not to protect children, they will die at the hands of the government if they don’t follow the brown shirt line and want freedom. The government are the elites who want to be the masters on the plantation of every race and color, the rules for the slaves but, not the masters.

    “But it can’t happen here!!” Do you want to take the chance??
    “There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.” While I fear the damage that our debt guarantees, I do not want to risk double jeopardy by surrendering my sword. Universal background checks = permanent records and leads to registration which would quickly result in CONFISCATION. Do you really believe that the Elites have our best interests at heart?
    Surrendering Freedom for Temporary and False Security does lead to disaster.

    Don’t forget a historical point that came from Havana Stadium where Che personally bears the responsibility for the death/executions of over 5,500 people. Che shot many of those executed personally. Many of those were personally named by Che and his men went out and brought those named and their families back to be executed. Many of those killed supported Che and Fidel providing monies, food, shelter, medical supplies, needed equipment military or otherwise and they were considerly ‘friendly’ to Che and Fidel their cause. Many asked Che when they were told they were going to be murdered, ‘Why are you doing this to us, we supported you and helped you”? Che’s answer was, “You are a traitor to your own country, how can the new Cuba trust you”!

    This guy has more sense in his finger than Obama and this adminstration have collectively. And anyone who doesn’t follow his advice and not to protect the seond amendment needs to be gone.

    Who gave the communist/socialists we have in Washington DC the authority to shred the Constitution and Bill of Rights? I really don’t believe that what they are doing is legal? The Supreme Court could be questioned about this but they would probably rule the same way they did for Obamacare. At least the decision to terminate our rights could be under litigation for the next 50 years or so. That’s something the attorneys should most certainly would endorse.
