Oh, they're working, and well...

Guns in the hands of civilians in such massive numbers preclude the regime from various courses of action. The very fact that the people are armed and many highly trained denies them tactical options. It actually increases the chance things could be resolved peacefully, by denying effective domestic warfare by the regime.

The simple fact that we are all not locked in a dark cage in Guantanamo is the result. It's working, quite well in fact.

Sometimes you measure success in what doesn't happen. This is a perfect example.
