4. I don't think that needing

a weapon like that to defend oneself from the government is a good reason to own one,
but if the outcome implied by the illustration is so certain, one wonders why the "win" in Afghanistan is so unconvincing, despite a hugely disproportionate level of armaments between the two sides? Vietnam and a few other conflicts come to mind, as well. I'm not at all sure that the ultimate outcome would be as predictable as some might assume.
