A Firsthand Account of How Freedom Can Be Taken Away

posted on June 8, 2023

In this video, Gabby Franco tells the story about why, after representing her native country as a shooting competitor for Venezuela in the 2000 Olympics, she fled Venezuela for the United States in order to keep her freedom. Franco previously detailed her journey to keep her freedom in a feature in America’s 1st Freedom.

Now she elaborates by explaining in this exclusive interview: “Coming to the United States, I always tell people, was a blessing. When I came to America, I did not speak English, and I was watching Left-leaning Spanish television networks that were giving me the same worldview I was often exposed to in Venezuela. But, given what I went through in Venezuela, I wasn’t buying it. Still, it took a while for me to learn all about the Second Amendment and this awesome freedom. So now, I tell all those of us who speak Spanish that they must help educate those whose first language is Spanish. I also tell them: Don’t try to make this country into where you came from! You came here for opportunity, to pursue your dreams, so you should always remember why you came to the U.S. You ran from a socialist government, from anti-gun, anti-liberty regimes. You came here for freedom, so embrace it, learn about and tell everyone you speak with what this liberty is and why it is so important.”

The Increasing Burden of Backdoor Gun Control

A mountain of fees, regulations and more is making it increasingly difficult for many law-abiding Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights. This is what gun-control proponents want.
