As we noted in a post earlier today, the media and politicians feign incredulity at Americans who pledge they will never give up their guns. They cite polls claiming a majority of Americans support outlawing AR-15s or other firearms. Surely no one could could reasonably oppose regulating these dangerous weapons of war.
And at the same time, Americans are seeing the news coming from 90 miles to our south. Cuba is what frequent TTAG contributor Luis Valdes — a descendent of Cuban refugees — calls an authoritarian hellscape, a despotic regime. A society where the people can only oppose the tyranny that enslaves them with rocks and sticks.
Protesters describe panicky conversations about what shape the crackdown may take. Cubans employed by the state fret about their jobs. Those with detained relatives express fear that speaking out will lead to harsher treatment for their loved ones. https://t.co/AFodirVVqq

As Luis preaches from his own family’s experience, a disarmed people are slaves to the state. Lobby your local, state, and national government’s to preserve and protect your Second Amendment rights. Never give in to a false promise of security.
