I will add to Skans excellent post by highlighting an important point, which you brushed upon earlier with:
Nor if the government was stripping rights away would you[sic] gun prevail against its military.
Don't be so sure. History is FILLED to the contrary.
Keep in mind that a rag tag bunch of colonials sent the world's #1 army/navy packing; a bunch of mountain men sent a superpower home in shame and is keeping another extremely busy. The civil wars in the middle east (Egypt, Libya, Syria) are perfect examples of how a few rifleman can overthrow a superior-armed and militarized tyrannical government.
You underestimate the resistance fighter. Even Dr Ruth Westheimer was a trained sniper and scout.
