Mel Martinez on Gun Control

Republican Jr Senator (FL); previously Secretary of H.U.D.


I will always protect our Second Amendment Rights

I will always vote to protect our Second Amendment rights. I know first hand what can happen when government limits gun rights. As I child I witnessed the communist takeover of Cuba. One of the first things Castro did when he came to power was to confiscate our guns. Then he slowly took away our other freedoms religious, speech, and dissent until finally government controlled every facet of people’s lives. I will always vote on the side of freedom and our right to keep and bear arms.
