The difference is, we are still clinging to our 2nd amendment - so at least we still have armed revolt as an option. The UK doesn't even have that.
Now that's funny. We always have a good laugh at that bullshit. You have a gun so the pigs have armor piercing rounds, gas, and tanks. They train for armed resistance and usually shoot to kill if there is even the suspicion of a weapon (or a piece of tinfoil). The pigs are a lot more polite on this side of the Atlantic.
