Richard Viguerie's web site debunks the whole myth that the surveillance state and more control of our rights will make us safer. The Navy Yard shooters prior misconduct, Nidal Hassan's obvious radicalization at Fort Hood, the Tsaernaev's in Boston, PFC Manning's personal issues with gender identity were all missed due to either political correctness or the overwhelming amount information collected by the surveillance state.
In a free society, there will never be perfect safety. The statists on the left know this and use every tragedy to argue for more regulation. Arguing that the regulation will not be effective is necessary, but we should also argue that it is our right to own guns as a matter of the inherent human right of self-defense. No pile of statistics removes my right to make a judgement about my own personal safety and how to best defend myself. Every person on the planet has the right of self-defense, which is God given. Gun rights are human rights.
