“Do you really think they’re that stupid?”
Yes, I actually think they’re that stupid. If you paid attention to the ATF attack at Waco, any grunt PFC can figure out how to kill them all. And if you did any reading on cop sites, you would know that the first order of business is to head home and protect their families if TSHF. That was proven during the Los Angeles riots in 1991, and proven again when the NYC fat-ass cops stood by after Sandy and let the looters take whatever they wanted.
And if you're one of those hardy souls who has provided for your own material needs without help from anywhere else, good for you, but if you're far enough away so they can't get you, you're too far away to matter.
You, missed the real point, though, and that is that they don't NEED to round up millions of people or confiscate millions of guns. A country full of radical individualists is surprisingly easy to control as a unit.
