We need more Americans like him

who understand what liberty really means. He's great!

My name is Manuel Martinez. Born in Cuba. American Citizen for more than 40 years. I oppose any manipulation, any regulation or disruption of the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.

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...

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

The "outburst" of hand clapping

"If there's another outburst, we'll have to clear those individuals" from the room, says the lawmaker/breaker after audience members applaud Martinez's testimony.

Q: When did hand clapping in support of the Constitution and freedom constitute an outburst that must be silenced?

A: When the tyrants and Marxists infiltrated the government and saw the need to squelch dissension.

It's about control of expression as well as guns, the First and Second Amendments both are under assault by totalitarians in Oregon and elsewhere.

The lawmakers themselves, if they support the Constitution and their oaths of office, should have given Martinez a rousing standing ovation.

Good find...

Sorry for double post Bro!

Perhaps something

this important should be shared more than once, eh? :)

I thought this from the article was important (gun registration frequently leads to gun confiscation):

"...Others such as Oregon Firearm Federation Director Kevin Starrett attacked the state’s obvious attempt at gun registration, which has already been used to implement confiscation in several states.

“We all know what this bill is about. This is a gun registration and confiscation bill,” Starrett said. “Let’s not tell the same lies we told in New York and California.”

Despite the obvious move towards registration, the bill’s author, Democratic Sen. Floyd Prozanski, claimed no records would be kept past 10 days, calling Starrett a “conspiracist” for not blindly trusting the government’s claims.

Following the passage of the New York SAFE act in 2013, REGISTERED GUN OWNERS BEGAN RECEIVING LETTERS DEMANDING THEY HAND OVER THEIR FIREARMS. Recent legislation in CALIFORNIA produced similar results, with JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AGENTS CONFISCATING FIREARMS FROM LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS all across the state..."
