How many young people have to die senselessly? How many lives have to be ruined before we realize the right to bear arms doesn’t protect us from a government equipped with stealth bombers, predator drones, tanks and nuclear weapons?

Tell that to Egypt

Tell that to Libya

Tell that to Syria

All of which had a far superior military compared to their populace.

Syria has chemical weapons - will it do them any good against their population? Obviously not if the international community has anything to say about it.

If the rebels did not have access to weapons, there would be no revolution. Stealth bombers are largely irrelevant as the international community would not likely allow for such to stand.

We don't need to be as well armed as the government. We simply need to be armed enough that it is just too costly, in all forms, to suppress us.
