Overreliance on the Second Amendment

Many of the Pro-Second Amendment people talk about it as a defense against government tyranny.  Many of the Pro-Gun Control people then laugh and say, “Sure, because Joe Bob and his brother/cousin Leroy hiding in the woods with their AR-15s and empty beer bottles will be a match to a supersonic cruise missile fired from a ship a hundred miles out to sea.” But I wonder if this is a case of people fighting the new war with the weapons and tactics of the last? 

I mean, some of the fringe gun people think the government operate mass shooting false flags to force gun control on people.  (Although, despite all these “false flags” there hasn’t been any increase in gun control, but after every shooting there is a rise in gun sales, so who really benefits from these supposed false flag operations?)  If the government is that evil, then why wouldn’t they plant, I don’t know, child porn on the laptops of prominent gun people to discredit and remove them before doing anything overtly tyrannical? 

Many would define the Intolerable Acts as tyranny, but what of gerrymandering and voter suppression?  Aren’t these actions of one party to stay in power despite the will of the people minor acts of tyranny?  How the fuck would an AR-15 stop gerrymandering?
