A couple of points.

1) Regardless of whether or not Google can look into people's emails,
it should be pointed out that the same could be said of so can many
ISPs and specialised email hosting providers from whom people have
their email hosted.  I understand that Google deploys some form of
encrypted filesystem for Gmail's store, but couldn't tell you much
beyond that.

You want your mail store to be secure - host it yourself and apply
whatever encryption methods you see fit.

2) There is a plug-in for Firefox which will give your GPG
capabilities with Gmail:
