That's certainly a big problem. Generally
, the State is a larger threat to liberty than one's neighbors. However, if those neighbors happen to be murderous Klansmen, the situation gets a sharp turn for the worse...
Still, let's keep in mind that the South systemmatically disarmed blacks. Blacks were soft
targets that couldn't fight back, until black WWII veterans started arming themselves for their collective self-defense (Black Panther Party and others). Under anarchy, minorities could (and would) fight back against the racists. What would prevent gays, blacks, or any other oppressed group from banding together for their mutual defense?
Some armed groups will be defensive. These'll have to be tolerated and probably encouraged. Others will be predatory thugs violating the rights of people. These'll have to be put down. *shrug*
