While citizens do not have access to the same class of weaponry as the state, we out number them.
There are 300,000,000 gun in private hands.
Compared to the whole of the US military and civilian law enforcement which comes to just under 3,000,000.
If 3% of the adult population stands up and says we will not give up our guns then we outnumber the government almost 3 to 1.
Thought I think they would have an issue collecting the guns from the 25,000,000 people in Texas.
Before someone says "They will just bring in the UN troops" Well, that will add about 150,000 people. Not really enough to make a dent.
