The second amendment enables everyone equally.
This is distinct from, for example, "Group X has superior authority over everyone else, with these privileges and duties..."
Whether for the intention of safety or not, the latter enables a group of would-be do-gooders to do as they will, be they predators or angels.
You know that though - you keep saying we are run by gangs.
I agree with you. I believe in no gangs. I believe that nobody has any authority over anybody else. I believe that when we grant such authority, it enables the worst among us to do as they will.
More importantly though, the second amendment is just a reflection of a natural right we would have regardless of it being in print. There is no natural right to 'have authority over others and punish evil at your whim' as must exist with a state.
