That number is off. Civilians may outnumber the military firearm wise, but there are a lot more than a million military small arms even. I would venture to say there is at least a single firearm for every soldier, sailor, airman and Marine at the very least which is about 1.5 million active duty. That's not taking into account personnel such as myself with two weapons issued. At the same time, I can't think of a single military member that I've ever met that would see coming to your house to confiscate your weapons as a lawful order, no matter who issued it. We take an oath to protect and defend the constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic and a threat such as public disarmament would seem to go against that.
