No revolution even when Americans have 200 million privately-owned firearms ?
The FBI estimates that there are over 200 million privately-owned firearms in the US. If you add those owned by the military, law enforcement agencies and museums, there is probably about 1 gun per person in the country.
If you want to get a rough idea of how many guns there are out there just look at how many people you see out there then multiply by a factor of estimated ownership. The last best guess was about 350,000,000 Total. That would be 1 weapon for every man woman and child. The average gun enthusiast owns several firearms which includes pistols, shotguns, and rifles of all makes and models. It is often estimated that about 1 in 4 people own any firearms and on average firearms owners own 4 guns each.

No one knows the exact number of firearms owned by private citizens in the US, In 1995, the BATFE estimated that there were about 223 million firearms owned by individuals in the US. The number has increased since then.
There is no definitive answer, because most states don't require registration.

The good man does not risk his life, and the welfare of the family that depends upon him, until he concludes that inaction is a greater threat to the welfare of his loved ones than action.

We aren't quite there yet. Revolutions usually take up to 2 decades to get going good. We're about a decade into this tyranny.

Wait for Obamacare to take full effect next year. That's when we'll start to see social unrest. Then give it another year or two before the masses start waking up. It's coming.
