but what good is your AR-15 when you're fighting the full force of the United States military?

Asymmetrical warfare is very effective against any superior armed force, and to believe that having even a semi-automatic rifle when fighting our own military is useless displays exceptional ignorance or an outright fraudulent statement. Such an imbecile should ask our own military how they feel about such an absurd statement.

If such a weapon would be so useless against our own military, why worry about civilians owning them in the first place if their primary purpose is to fight against a tyrannical government? I think the government, not to mention China's government, absolutely want these weapons out of our hands, and the reason is because they know how effective such weapons are against a professional military.

All they have to do is drop a smart bomb on your house from high above and you're done.

There aren't nearly enough bombs to eradicate all of the patriots who will be fighting those who have such weaponry, nor would it be cost effective to attempt to disarm guerrilla fighters in such a fashion, obviously. Also, those dropping the bombs live here as well and by no means are they or their loved ones immune to retaliation.

Alternatively, they could simply run over your house with a Kevlar-plated M1 Abrams tank, or shell your dwelling from cannons positioned far away.

Anti-tank mines, along with other "interesting" munitions and anti armor "items" that can be acquired, are not so difficult to produce by a determined group of patriots, and are undeniably effective if positioned effectively. Also, as stated above, those who are driving said tanks and their loved ones are not immune to retaliation, and logistics for those large weapons of war are by no means going to be secure.

Artillery or mortars, or even MLRS, are very effective weapons, but the crew that serves those weapons are by no means "invulnerable", and the same I've noted above is just as true for those who are manning such weapons.

The arguments provided by this person attempting to dissuade patriots from even attempting to mount any opposition to our government is either unbelievably ignorant or simply mouthing talking points that he knows are only "partial truths", IMO.
