Okay, does this really apply now with regards to the 2nd amendment? I'm not a gun guy at all, but I would think that if the government turned on us, don't they have weaponry that is *way* more powerful than what you can buy at a gun store, even those in states with few restrictions? To defend ourselves, wouldn't we need access to the same type of weaponry?

The thing is, if the Second Amendment does not matter in today's world, the precedent is set, and any other of the bill of rights may be dispensed with at will by the Federal Government, under the pretense that "they don't apply in today's world". If you feel that the Second Amendment does not apply in todays world, and should be removed, work to get the constitution changed, by another Amendment. It would be very difficult, as it was designed to be. It HAS been done before, and we all know how well THAT worked out.
