The people couldn't win against regular troops in the 18th century (most of our soldiers in the Revolutionary war were veterans of the British Army, i.e. they were regular troops—the pop-culture version of that war is mostly mythology); they REALLY can't win now, not generally having tanks or air support. Rather, the right to bear arms protects against tyranny because the populace are not wholly dependent on the government for protection from crime.
