One of the Parkland, Florida, high school anti-gun activists is taking heat for wearing a Cuban flag patch on her jacket. Critics say it shows her naiveté to preach against the Second Amendment that protects us from tyrannical governments while wearing the flag of a tyrannical government that took away its citizens’ guns. Supporters say she was just proudly displaying her Cuban heritage, which is separate from the Cuban government.

I’d like to point out an angle that hasn’t been covered yet: even the anti-gun group GunPolicy.org claims that Castro didn’t disarm the populace and there are still an estimated 545,000 privately-owned guns in Cuba. While the vast majority of weapons are in the hands of government and police (which naïve youth apparently believes makes people safer and more secure), the Cuban constitution does allow citizens to have arms. Not to protect themselves from the government, Heaven forbid, but so they can fight “anyone who tries to overthrow the political, social and economic order.” In other words, they’re allowed to own a gun to protect their communist oppressors, but not to protect themselves from their communist oppressors.

Therefore, since many protesters at the march were calling for a repeal of the Second Amendment, confiscation of guns and disarming the citizenry completely, that would actually put their position on guns far to the left of Fidel Castro’s. This is what the Democratic Party proudly points to as America’s future under them.

So think long and hard before you decide to surf that “blue wave” next November.

    Why doesn't Mr. Gardner start one of his own marches against teens & texting???

    Mr. Huckabee, There are actually 220,000 privately-owned guns in Cuba.
    Licensed gun owners total 54, 158.
    NO ONE, INCLUDING THE LEFT, DEMOCRATS, PROGRESSIVES, ETC. WANTS TO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY! I don't know how many times it needs to be said that the purpose of sane gun control is to, gosh - have sane GUN CONTROL!! It couldn't be any clearer than that, and yet you, the righties, Republicans, GOP, conservatives continually say just the opposite. Why is that? You don't understand the statement? No one wants to take your guns away. Period!!!!! You know what is wanted & NEEDED to bring some control of deaths by guns - any kind of guns! Please stop distorting the truth & castigating everyone who has a different opinion than you! Please! What would Jesus do???

Oh, wait, teens LIKE texting and driving, so they can’t stand up against that!!! And what about THEIR victims??? How many are being killed and maimed by them EVERYDAY???

    Doris is a Cuban-born American (here 56 years) who came in 1962 because her parents did not want her to grow up without God or freedom--they were poor but very Christian Presbyterians. She is ashamed of this girl doing what she is doing. Cubans who came to this country seeking freedom are very grateful for the freedom they enjoy but are very loyal to what America is and represents. True Cubans who love freedom would never soil their flag or heritage by fighting against a right for which Americans fought and which we enjoy for having been given asylum here. We even thought she looked like a Castro Cuban "miliciana," (militia woman) who Doris remembers as a child! Ironic! Thank you Governor for all you do. We are so blessed to have you on the RIGHT SIDE!
