Keep in mind that the purpose of the right in america was supposedly to act as a bulwark against the encroachment of governmental tyranny. At this point I question the ability of the citizenry, even when armed with personal firearms, to mount any kind of serious armed resistance against the forces of the US military.

This! The firearms of US citizens can't do shit against the military so the whole argument is just preposterous imho.
