This idea that we can fend off the government with our pistols and rifles interests me.
Back in the days of the Revolutionary War I can that seemed plausible.
But, it is no longer an issue of who has more bullets. These days it is about logistics, supplies and information/intelligence.
I mean, when the insurrection starts, how are you going to coordinate as you amass your 9mm Berettas and Mini 14 rifles? You going to email each other? Use your cell phones, or land lines? The NSA will pick that up in a heartbeat. Then in your Idaho compound, how are you going to get your food, water and gin you need to survive? In some way that wiretaps, satellites and network sniffers won't get wind of?
It doesn't really matter that the government has tanks and nuclear weapons. They have drones, and satellites and generally knows everything you say.
I don't really seem how an armed populace would be a threat to a 1st world country in this day in age.
As Demonic points out, when they passed the Patriot act I'm pretty sure not one person in Washington DC gave one thought to how many pistols there were out there. Because it doesn't matter.
