Where is the permission slip so all rich people can form security teams with whatever they want? Has to be in there. All gun control has to have an “unless you are rich claus.”
I doubt you will find anything in writing. The general operating assumption is that, unless specifically prohibited, it is permitted.

Private, legally armed, security forces exist and are allowed under current law.

Anyone with the $ can hire them for any lawful purpose. Been that way for a long time, and will continue until/unless some law expressly forbids it.

The Chief of San Fran Police was talking about bringing back the Special Patrols that the city drove out of business in the last 20 years. Sky high crime and shortages of regular police have combined to make people pine for those days.
