Oregon –-(Ammoland.com)- “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.”

A man who fled Cuba’s communist regime in the 1960s blasted Oregon lawmakers Thursday during a public hearing on proposed gun control legislation.

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.

Please remember & pray for the biker groups headed to Mexico this very moment; American Patriots doing what Treasonous Obama will not. God bless them! Had guns not been involved, Tahmooressi would already be home. But not for the reasons you think. NOT because this Marine, who served his nation honorably, had guns when he crossed into Mexico… but because Obama intends to see ALL GUNS GONE from public ownership. The refusal by the POTUS to become involved in THIS soldier’s release is simply one more political statement by the Obama Administration as to WHY they want the 2nd Amendment… Read more »

Unless the People of The United States actually DO something about this…it is NOT going to change. I know…”DO something about this” is open to individual interpretation…but until we, collectively, get together, under one banner…it’s not going to change. A big step would be to get the lib media to start waking up and start doing something, bit to paraphrase Sara Palin…the ONLY time they do is when 0bamas’ “boot is on their neck”. No. I, personally, do not have a definitive answer to all this, but something needs to be done…now, peacefully, if possible, before it DOES come to… Read more »

If you look at Germany during Hitler’s rise there is a comparison, as to, what is happening under the Obama dictatorship. The conservation camps are already set up around the United States. They have been kicking the officers and enlisted men out of the Military that won’t, in essence, go against the American people and the Constitution. They are just waiting for a chance to apply Marshal Law.


Ay Caballero!!! Manuel Martinez, I will stand and fight by your side any day. Godspeed, Sir. You are a fine example of what an American is supposed to be.

In all of my dealings with ANY and ALL government bureaucracies, I have discovered that they will do as they want! Any protestations that we may have only leads to superficial meetings to appease the laws and appellate rules. In the end, they will do what they had intended to do all along. My advice is to load-up on ammo, wait for the revolution, then shoot them before the armistice is passed, that way they will not be around to continue their communist ways!

This man has seen it, he has lived it, and he escaped it, he knows! This is a American hero, they should listen to him, but they won’t, that is sad. We put them in office to represent us, and as soon as they say the oath of office, they forget about us and they focus on their own agenda.

I hear much about gun control/marxism on line. When it comes to voting where are the people who care? Make this subject more personal people!! Get out there an vote! If you can’t get to a polling place get a mail in ballot!

b O'!



people just want wake up. they are waiting for another 9/11. just you wait and see.


Pres. O. And his ilk seem to find it convenient to ignore the law, maybe it’s time everyone else leads by example….


Washington is trying the same BS. I WILL just ignore any new gun laws, and I suggest everyone do the same. The state, big or small “s” can go to hell.


I went to the gun-magazine limit repeal debates at the Denver state capitol on Monday…It was a farce…Those Democrat representatives and or Senators whot sit on these gun control committee’s are all a bunch of political hacks who have opted for Marxism to force gun legislation over the will of the American people…These committee hacks don’t know one end of a gun from the other much less have any idea what comes out of the front end of a squirt gun…In their anti-gun frenzy to appease our marxist leaning President last July…They were able without public support to pass some… Read more »
