The right to self defense requires the unfettered ability to keep and bear whatever arms the criminals might have.
Whatever arms a soldier can bear, there is an inalienable self-evident right to use for self defense against death or grave injury of yourself and other innocent parties. Deadly force is justified only when undertaken to prevent imminent and otherwise unavoidable danger of death or grave bodily harm to the innocent. This requires an assessment of the ability, opportunity, and intention of an aggressor necessary to cause serious or lethal harm.The use of persuasion and conflict reduction rather than resort to the use of force is requires assertiveness and courage, but there is a limit.
