The lack of heavy weaponry owned by citizens would present a serious obstacle for citizens fighting the government. Besides that I agree.

Home made bombs and guerilla tactics go a long way.

not at 270 to 1, and the 1 not really having the stomach to gun down the citizens they signed up to protect. nukes would be the only way. then you've hit fuck it levels already anyway.

Using nukes on youself is suicide, and that's assuming the people in charge of actually executing the command would fire the most destructive weapons ever to be built on their own country. My personal guess is that most wouldn't, training or no, and they'd probably shoot their fellows who tried.

If you really think that it is going to be 270 to 1 you are delusional. That number includes children, old people, cripples, and even liberals. The most reliable number that is on the optimistic end is around 3%. It should also be remembered that the reserves and national guard would be called. Even if only half of those served, that would push the US military over 2 million. Add half of the police and you have about 2.5 million trained soldiers with tanks, planes, IFVs, and experience vs 11 million disorganized citizens, many who are very likely to desert in confusion or fear of a situation they don't understand. Masturbating over a revolution is a dumb thing and will get people killed.
