I think the whole protection against a tyrannical government thing is silly. As it stands now, no, you wouldnt get the Air Force to bomb Americans. But if at some point in the future you see a true tyrannical government, wouldnt it be safe to assume that he would have a lot of military backing? You couldnt even have someone rise up without it, so in order to assume youd ever need guns for throwing out the government, you also have to assume that you would be fighting a military.
