Manuel Martinez, who narrowly escaped Cuba in 1962 after being imprisoned for opposing Fidel Castro, passionately defended the Second Amendment in front of Oregon’s Senate Judiciary Committee, comparing the state’s attempts to pass gun control to moves made by his former government.
“Don’t sell me this. A very powerful man tried to sell me this 50-something years ago, I didn’t buy it,” Martinez said. “This is
Marxism, plain and clear.”
The legislation, Senate Bill 1551, proposes massively expanding
background checks to almost every private sale, somehow expected to
force criminals to voluntarily submit to a records check.
“They put this dog and pony show saying hey, we are going to protect
you. No, what they did was enslave a country,” Martinez said. “They
destroyed a country the same way that this country is going to be
destroyed if we continue in this fashion. This is what you’re selling
here!” Martinez said, holding up old communist magazines from Cuba.
Which must've seriously burned the ass of the Evil Party minions pushing this.
