The army and police are supposed to be servants of the people and so representatives of the people the public is people too. The only reason we are
not allowed to bear arms is because we would be seen as a threat to the blatant corrupt status quo. The law is not made for the sake of fairness the
law is to maintain a corrupt fews power over us.
Yet I would feel safer if we lived in a world where guns were not neccessary

I understand what you're saying, about if the police are allowed to enforce the law with weaponary, then the citizen should also be allowed to
lawfully have that weapon. This, I believe, is a big problem.
The main point in this is that because they have weapons, it doesn't mean you should. It means they shouldn't
. Armed officers should be
called out when there is a weapon involved in a crime yes, but ordinary? No.
And the reason the police in USA have guns in the first place, is because the public have guns. You can't expect a person to enforce a law, without a
gun, against someone who has a gun, who the hell would go for that job?! It'll be near enough suicide!
As for armies, thats how they work. They fight other armies who have weapons, and like i said before, you can't expect a soldier to go to war,
against other armies, without a weapon.
Until martial law comes and soldiers begin shooting at their own public, I see no reason for guns.
And to be honest, i've seen threats of martial law come and go over the last 4/5 years......
