Will Ricky Martin be Caught Up in Gun Control Net He Helped Cast?

Ricky and fellow “commonsense gun safety law” supporter… (Ricky Martin/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Ricky Martin hit with domestic abuse restraining order, says allegations ‘fabricated’,” the New York Post reported Sunday. Apparently, the as-yet-unidentified person who filed for the order in Puerto Rico, where they both live, is not the singer’s husband but, per the order, another man he “dated for seven months.”

Per the Post’s translation of an el Vocero report:

“The person alleged that Martin didn’t accept their break up two months ago and that he has loitered near the petitioner’s home at least three times, the report said. ‘The petitioner fears for his safety,’ el Vocero quoted the order as saying.”

And per WomensLaw.org:

“Under Puerto Rico law, a person cannot have or buy a gun unless s/he has a weapons license. A person cannot get a license, and therefore, cannot have or buy a gun, if s/he: has been convicted of or has charges pending for [emphasis added] … a domestic violence-related offense …”

So now, just as with so-called “red flag laws/extreme risk protection orders,” even though he maintains his innocence, Martin could be a “prohibited person.”

 (The Associated Press says it has not obtained a copy of the order .)

Ironically, Martin, who advocates “No Guns” on Facebook, has lent his name to the federal government disarming his fans.

“The Puerto Rican singer, who also signed Billboard’s open letter to senators for gun control reform in honor of the Pulse anniversary, revealed that a tribute song was actually in the works, but it didn’t come out as he expected,” Billboard reported last year. “Instead, his new single, ‘Que Rico Fuera’ in collaboration with Chilean newcomer Paloma Mami, is just that: a song inspired by Pulse.”

“For ’tis the sport to have the engineer Hoist with his own petard,” Hamlet tells his mother in Shakespeare’s classic play.

At this point, the presumption is that Martin is innocent until proven guilty. That’s how it’s supposed to work, which is something that “red flag laws” ignore and calls to “close boyfriend loopholes” ignore.

The difference here, of course, is that unlike “ordinary people,” who must also be presumed innocent, Martin, with an estimated net worth of $130M, can afford the finest private security money can buy while he’s waiting for his high-priced lawyers to cut him a deal.

Late Addition:

And this news just broke after this article had been submitted for publication:

“Ricky Martin accused of incest and domestic violence by nephew, lawyer disputes allegations — Ricky Martin, 50, could potentially face 50 years in prison if accusations are true.”

As believers in due process, gun ownership advocates believe that suspects are innocent until proven guilty. It would only be fitting if prohibitionists like Martin would extend the same consideration to those accused under “red flag laws.”

Dude, back off of the caffeine!

uncle dudley

The photo of these two says it all, wonder if they hit a Turkish bath together.


No, they just got back from ebstein island.


Nah. It was probably a Bath House in Chicago.


Right, one of the place that the Monkeypox is running rampant. Amazing how the Gub’ment will mobilize all their forces when it comes to helping the “bathhouse boys”…


Nah, probably a foam party with Marco Rubio.


Livin’ La Vida Dumbass.


or pay off the boyfriend to move off island , hope he fries in his own pan


Progressive ideas sound great until you have to suffer them yourself. This is a central truth I discovered many years ago.Progressives and leftists of all flavors are great at cooking up schemes to control the lives of other people. When those chickens come home to roost they are the first to cry foul. Case in point: I have many friends in California. Some from my military time spent there and many still from my college time at SF State. When the latest ‘arm yourself’ rage hit the state many were incensed that they had to navigate ‘Jim Crow style’ hurdles… Read more »


And why do you call these people your friends?

Sound the Charge.

….If you ain’t CAV. . .


And sadly your friends are soon to find out that natural gas has been banned in LA and many other places across the country as it is a fossil fuel and against the regime change agenda and protocols of their Green New Deal. Stay apathetic Patriots!


So if Ricky has a “Husband”, doesn’t that make him the “Wife” then? Things are getting SOOOO confusing nowadays. Of course, the individual he is pictured with above has for a long time said to be married to a male, an “he/she” (Moochele) definitely looks it!!!


Put him and his ilk in chains. To the Dungeon. I can’t stand homopedos.


TMZ has reported that it’s the singers young male cousin that has filed the report. The son of his brother Eric.


Isn’t that “nephew,” not cousin? Cousin who be aunt or uncles son.


Who? POS. LOL!

Handy N Handsome

Ricky who?


He’s an Arse Spelunker. Who cares whether he’s burned by a law he promoted?


Plays the skin flute….


Must be from California


Yyyyeah….I’m thinking Ricky’s never fired a handgun in his life & has no desire to ever do so. Needless article.


F Ricky “Livin’ La Vida Puta” Martin. Digression: GOA “ACTION ALERT”: “House Voted Anti-Gun AGAIN. Thank Your Rep if They Opposed It; Spank Them if They Voted For It…It won’t surprise you to hear the House just voted for more gun control: HR 6538 Active Shooter Alert Act. TAKE ACTION, call your senators.” I’m not surprised we’re losing when 2A groups waste our power on FAKE ACTION: lobby & “spank” committed grabbers in secure seats, achieving nothing rather than focus on potentially vulnerable reps in pro-gun districts. There’s no good excuse for not lobbying reps in other states. Might as… Read more »

Tell DiFi & Schumer to back off gun control OR ELSE!

Or else what? Or else you will be very disappointed in them, and you will send them a letter telling them how disappointed you are!



I don’t know what idiots are down voting this reply but they are definitely out of sync with reality.


Thank God you can’t spit and slobber on text messages!
