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.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.
