THEMATHISNEAR: "Apparently, Mr. History Professor, you forgot the disarmed citizenry in the areas controlled by Nazi Germany, Communist China and Cambodia, among others. What happened to them?"

Wait - you're serious????

First, our Democracy isn't perfect, but Cambodia we're not.

Second, even if you and all your friends were to arm yourself with a whole bunker full of AR-15 rifles, the US Government has enough tanks, planes, carrier groups, and way more firepower than you and your friends could possibly muster, to say nothing of enough nuclear weapons to destroy every human on the planet many times over. If it really gets to a point where you have to take up arms against your own government here in the US, we're all ##$@!$# one way or the other. Sure, popping shots from your pea-shooter at the Bradleys and Abrams tanks, and drones shooting Hellfire missiles, and F-35s flying at Mach 1.5 overhead, might make you feel a bit better, but doing so really isn't going to change things a whit at that point.
