45. I won't say never, but it would take a Massive event to even consider operaterating

inside the US. That is what the national guard, FBI, ICE, DEA, and ATF is for.

It would take a major, major event (we're talking much bigger than 9/11 in scale) for the military to even consider operating inside the US. Even then, I think it would take Congressional approval or a ruling from the SCOUS for the CJCS to even consider it.

The only think I can think of where it would even be a possibility would be a biological weapon attack. I could see the military being asked to enforce quarantines that the police, NG, etc, couldn't handle it on their own.
