However, it's a silly subject because single shot and semi automatic weapons wouldn't make any difference when facing a force using modern automatic weapons on modern day platforms. To be a viable protection from whatever, weaponry would have to be equal. Those that are supplying the rebels in Syria with modern weapons are what is keeping things going. Not some slob with a bolt action enfield. Who is going to supply the American populace with modern automatic weapons and the ammo to keep them going?
Well, maybe Mexico will loan us a few back.
The founders of this nation had a great idea but they had no idea of what weapons would be invented in the future.
That being said. From my cold dead hands is when you'll get mine. I have my reasons and I don't keep some academic nerd in the government telling me what I should own as long as it doesn't affect others.

The gun wasn't that different in the day when the founding fathers wrote the constitution. Armies used them then too.
We generally acknowledge that people do not have a right to own weapons of mass destruction. So, no binary nerve gas munitions allowed. This in my opinion is the limit of the Second Amendment. Besides, the use of such weapons is a game changer. If someone were to launch a weapon of mass destruction against another territory, there isn't much that an individual can do to stop it.
Likewise, if a military force came to a farm with few or no neighbors, there isn't much that one's guns could do.
But if you have neighbors, and they have guns, and an occupying force comes along, a sniper from the territory could do a lot to make the marauding military's visit very expensive. Add to that a bit of coordinated subversive activity and the occupying force won't stick around for long.
As evidence, look at what the time in Iraq and Afghanistan has done for our military morale. Look at what has been going on in Syria.
My reasons for owning a gun are in the hope that I'll never have to use one against another man or woman. But if forced in to it, I will, and I will be proficient at it.

And my point is one armored vehicle with automatic weapons would easily destroy an entire neighborhood or small town and nothing the weapons of locals could do a damn thing about it. So, to me. It's a mute point. I respect your opinion. I just don't believe it.
