Drones would be very

Drones would be very problematic to use. Just like the narrative, imagine how many would swell the ranks of an insurgency if they were used on difficult targets as gun owners who are... doctors, lawyers, school teachers... etc. The collateral damage from one missed drone would double any resistance.

As for nukes you have to ask yourself how prohibitive are they? One nuke would cost a tremendous amount of money to buy, maintain... etc. I really wonder if Bill Gates could afford to own one? Also... the 2nd Amendment only applies to the federal government. A state could easily ban private ownership off a nuke.

The problem is that we should be the military force and no standing army. I think the Founders intended citizens to be on par with any weapons a solider would carry.
