At the time of the revolution, the most destructive weapon reasonably available was a cannon or perhaps some dynamite. Would 3% of the country had been able to pull off the revolution if their rifles were matched against bomber jets with nuclear capabilities? Even assuming they were able to obtain illegal arms, do you think they could have pulled together enough to hold off the British Empire's air force? A militia isn't very valuable when it takes one button press to wipe out thousands.
