Not every gun owner is a full-throated supporter of the NRA/GOA/JPFO. More than few detest those organizations for their rhetoric and their paranoia.

Who said anything about disarmament?

Pretty much, yeah. Until the insurgents get a hell of a lot better equipped, trained, and led, they'd be hamburger. Heck, most of 'em wouldn't even know what hit 'em. They'd be eradicated from miles away without a clue that it was coming.

Why are you counting on LEOs and the military and gun owners being on the side of the insurgents? It's no less likely that the gun owners will happily fight on the side of the government against the anti-American traitors. And we know from the Drug War and various "incidents" on the part of the military that barbaric acts are far from impossible.

Wasn't a problem for the witch hunts of the 1950s. Given the right propaganda and PR, the military will fall into line and do as they're ordered. They won't be getting rid of John and Jane Doe, regular Americans - they'll be eliminating a threat from domestic terrorists who want America destroyed and who are dangerous traitors and subversives.
