If 20 million peaceful Beijing citizens had been protesting in 1989, the Chinese government would probably have fallen. Unfortunately, it seems to have been 100,000 or so (0.5%).
If this forlorn minority had been armed, they would have been massacred even harder.
The 2nd amendment as a political right is just of no use in the face of a modern army.


Your whole line of thinking is utterly bizarre. It's as if you left out the sentence 'resistance is futile'.

There are 300 million guns in America, if we can believe the media reports (which is always a concern, I'll grant you, but let's go with it). There are over 300 million people. Let's say that the Government gets more tyrannical. Let's say 1/3 of the population is paying attention (you know, most of the ones that voted for Romney). Do you think even Big Brother Owebama, with as much power as he could possibly grab, would try to suppress or kill 100 million armed Americans scattered from sea to shining sea? From whom would he get the resources to fund such an operation?

I don't know where you're going with this, because you're so far off the map of reality that I don't even know where you are now.
