Imagine that Bill & Hillary declare martial law tomorrow.
I think this is less likely to happen if most people have guns
(better yet, keep them non-registered to keep the tyrants guessing).
What percentage of the populace will be angry enough to shoot
at armed-government types who comply with enforcing this martial law?
10% ? .000001% ? 30% ?
These people (whatever the number) will not be in one place.
I don't think that nuclear weapons are very effective against the
scattered people that decide to pick up a gun to fight tyranny.
