If you listen to our liberal politicians and media you hear a common argument: give up your guns and we’ll keep you safe. Guns are dangerous, guns kill, trust the government. We are constantly being told the guns are the real underlying problem behind murders, drug dealing, gang violence and social instability.
If only we would do something about all these dangerous-looking guns then we could all live life in peace. You know what happens when you give into that siren’s call and turn over your guns? Communist Cuba, North Korea, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, Nazi Germany, Stalin’s Russia: in short, hell on earth.
Spotlight on Cuba
Cubans who rose up recently to stand up to their horrific communist government had their internet cut off, were beaten down, shot at, jailed and tortured. Many families in America now no longer know where their relatives went, with hundreds disappearing into the bowels of the evil communist state and its network of brutal prisons.
Cubans who managed to escape have tried to warn us about their regime and what it’s capable of, but liberal Americans and the privileged among us just don’t pay enough attention. Cuban communists stripped gun ownership rights from almost all their people for a very simple reason:
An armed population is strong. An armed population can resist. An armed population is unpredictable…and what do communists and left-wing fascists want? A weak, defenseless, predictable population of exactly the kind that the Biden regime is trying to actively create here in the United States.
Where are our loved ones? That is the question for many families in Cuba, with almost 700 people arrested according to activists in the wake of a government crackdown earlier this month. @CNN_Oppmann investigates what’s really going on. pic.twitter.com/rLF2ACxQm6

We Don’t Want to End Up Like Communist Cuba
We can already see here in America how blue states and cities are falling into the liberal trap. Their economies have been destroyed and leftism has taken root. It’s a surprisingly short path from there to communism and all the horror it involves: food shortages, arresting dissidents, gun grabs, rampant poverty and absolute state power.
Only a small inner circle gets rewarded while everyone else gets to starve. Only the police and military who are fully loyal get guns, while everyone else gets a boot in the face if they even say the wrong words. Our blue states are turning into that in front of our very eyes. Patriots need to wake up, protect their guns and head for greener pastures in the red states.

The Lesson of Cuba
Cubans were in the streets screaming in defiance weeks ago. Now they’re in jail or God knows where. The lesson is simple: Cubans have plenty of bravery and energy. They stood up to a heavily-armed communist state, after all.
What they don’t have is firepower. When you take away the ability of a people to defend itself, you trap them like animals in a cage. You leave them subject to the most horrific abuses and extremism by their government. Gun rights are non-negotiable, and just remember: the Second Amendment guarantees the First Amendment.
