The "Guns for protection against potential out control govt" argument doesnt work for me

If those in the government and military ever decide that the Constitution is irrelevant and that it/they is/are willing to do whatever to the people to have power, each of us owning an AR-15 would not help.

An AR-15 is not going to protect me from a drone, or a howitzer, or a helicopter gunship, or an fight...
er plane/bomber, or nuclear, biological or chemical weapons. An out of control government could decide to use WMD against pockets of resistance. Guns will not help us.

I think we have to look at the fall of the Soviet Union. Even an empire that many in the US considered the epitomy of evil simply gave up power in the face of popular will. And guns had nothing to do with it.
