People can always do something about governments without guns - as Gandhi had already proved - if they act together. But failing to want to act together indicates the preponderance of mutual alienation.
In such a case, If they still insist that they need guns to 'protect themselves from the government', as some claim, then that means they are already fragmented enough to not be able to act together without arms to deal with the government. In such a case, how can they trust each other with a gun when they are mutually alienated in the first place?
In a situation where mutual alienation is true, and governments are oppressive, what can be expected is that people would be more likely to use their guns on each other to protect themselves from the consequences and rising cost of their apathy toward a self-serving government.
