Yep - opponents far more heavily armed and with good leadership and excellent tactics, none of which apply to your average American gun owner.

That would be stupid - but typical of what a gun owner would do.

It would take quite some time and a hell of a lot of work to get a gun owner up to Taliban level. They've had decades to figure it out.

If the gun owners really want to be a citizen militia to be able to serve as an effective counterweight to the US military, they're going to have to take that responsibility a hell of a lot more seriously. That doesn't mean lots of rounds down at the range, either.

Don't assume that the gun owners will be fighting on the rebels' side, either.
