Correct, the military did kill protesters at Kent State but that wasn't really a systemic reaction.
The communist's in russia finally fell when the military wouldn't fire on its fellow countrymen. I don't foresee any scenario in which the U.S. military would kill its own citizens to support tyranny.
So I don't buy we need guns to protect us from tyranny. I can get on board with we need guns to protect my family from bad guys.
