We chain ourselves, and doom our group with corruption.

Corruption runs deep in humans. It’s why Communism works on paper, but not in practice; why true Monarchies end with violent revolutions; why Capitalism ends in corrupt major powers lobbying against common sense. Where does it come from, though? Why is it so prevalent in our species? Can we destroy it? If not, can we at least circumvent it? Corruption has not only planted its seeds, it has been growing with us as long as human history. Humans have been helpless to it since the dawn of social hierarchies. Why try and fight something that’s been around since before Christ, or for that matter, any form of religion at all. It permeates us so completely, that it seems we’re helpless to it. So the real question becomes, not how can we rid ourselves from it, but how can we make it harder for it to occur?
Those willing to give up freedom for security deserve neither.

Will this be untrue soon??
Okay, let’s get to the meat of this. First, I would like to get some facts out onto the stage. The first one being the second amendment to our constitution:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
-The Bill of Rights
Now, a lot of people “interpret” that in different ways, mainly because of the comma after state. I ignore those “interpretations” and get to the literal meaning. What it basically means is that every state will have a regulated, trained military force made up of common people to defend said free state when the main body of the military is unable to. We call them the national guard today. The second part is the important part for you; people have the right to bear arms and your government cannot hinder that undeniable right in anyway.
