Absolutely Not

Having fought insurgents on two separate occasions, I can tell you that air superiority is an advantage, but when facing an angry population it is at best a poor advantage. We win fights in Afghanistan and Iraq because we are trained and because most of the people are just as angry at them for bringing war to their country. In most places, the first thing that the insurgents do when they get to town is disarm the locals. Look at all the Arab regimes right now that are falling, some just gave up when the protests go too bad.

When SHTF, grab the AR your bought, go to the nearest gun range and find a guy who can teach you how to shoot and fight. Don't buy into this "military only" BS. If an armed citizenry was no problem for a dictatorship, they wouldn't be trying to disarm us would they?
