Do you know what I find interesting? The delusion that civilians with guns would ever be able to mount any kind of effective resistance against the US Military, Navy or Air Force if the government decided to make an example of a city or two.
What, exactly are you going to do with your pistol against Tanks, APCs, Helicopter Gunships, Drones and bombardment from artillery so far away you can't even hear them firing? Pop off a clip into the air in defiance as you get mown down by professional soldiers in body armour with the latest in support weaponry?
Delusions. Completely divorced from reality. But that seems depressingly common everywhere you look.
Having massive experience being around people like this, they believe that most of the military will join them if a revolution were to start. It isn't american troops but Obama's U.N. army attack dogs they believe they will be facing.
