Gun collectors are each able to distribute guns to dozens of others during a civil war. As such the mere threat of illegal gun ownership by large groups of citizens undermines the notion that everyone has to be armed all of the time to deter tyranny. This is the reverse argument of individual criminals breaching gun control to commit murders against unarmed citizens where American conservatives demand gun rights. Ideally guns would be stored in gun clubs though some might be wary of the weapons being captured by a tyrant. So instead a highly vetted gun owner could store guns on behalf of would-be militia members.
