"Federal troops can't be used in a domestic law enforcement role without a lot of hurdles being jumped."

If there is a general "armed insurrection," by an organized group, and depending on its size and its scope, it may well rise above the level of a law enforcement matter and into the scope of military response required.

At that point, posse commitatus is a moot point.
