I empathise with your dismay of the human condition but your solution is to take the problem away from a fairly insignificant portion of tiny tyrants and place it in the hands of the biggest tyrant. No thanks.
I share your mistrust of the more insidious parts of human nature, but where is that condition more amplified than in the halls of government?
If I understand your position, you believe in an armed society to protect from the government turning tyrannical,
......and for reasons of personal liberty (that everyone should have a choice or a 'right' for the liberty to own a gun).
Where do you draw the line? What weapons should we be given access to? Should any weapons be banned or restricted?
Nerve Gas - I'd guess the average person would kill themselves making the stuff.
Tanks - Why not?
Nukes - I think that is a little impractical for the layperson without a degree in nuclear chemistry, an enrichment plant and a functioning laboratory.
