The 2nd amendment does not protect us against tyranny, the 1st does. Want to fight a tyrannical regime backed by the might of the U.S. Army? First, you need to be able to recognize and help others recognize the tyranny. Then you need allies: both foreign (i.e. France) and domestic (i.e. convincing Military units to defect and fight).

That's what went wrong in 1930s Germany. The German population was not disarmed, it had blinders put on. It was convinced to be PART of the tyranny.
