    themselves from drone strikes all the time. They may not belong to a specific RKBA group, but certain gun owners do feel the need to arm themselves against potential drone strikes.

    You might wonder, then, what is the strategy for defending against drones? It all comes down to men with rifles raiding drone airfields and taking them over. Once again, rifles become the single most important tool of resistance in the face of tyranny, which is exactly why the government is right now desperately seeking to register and confiscate all rifles in the hands of U.S. citizens. The MQ-1C Warrior drone has an operational range of 675 miles, meaning that drone airfields must be relatively close to intended targets. The airfields are the weak link, and this is what Americans must take back ifdrone mass murder is unleashed against American citizens (by any president, now or in the future).

      but they do have somewhat a belabored point.  Airfields have been overrun and disrupted/destroyed by men with rifles.

      Nobody here at DK is arguing that RKBA is dependent on some ability to gain parity with tanks/drones/nukes, though.
      In this context, to suggest that, because the 2nd amendment says that the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed is somehow invalidated by the presence of tanks/drones/nukes/whatever else the goverment has, is a straw man.
