Virginia has shown us a path as to how this works. When the governor threated a weapons ban in Virginia, a couple key things happened. First, the people protested peacefully against this idea. Second, and more importantly, counties in Virginia started passing 2A sanctuary laws. The governor and left saw what they were up against and backed down. The system worked. It wasn't cleansed of all evil, but in that instance it worked and tyranny was prevented.
Had he not done that, the next step was huge blocks of counties in that state basically saying to the State Capitol "Nope. What you gonna do about it?"? Get enough counties to do the same thing, and suddenly states are telling the feds "Nope, not happening." Local politics is the path forward that absolutely MUST be walked before any sort of armed resistance to protect freedom is to be considered. Because doing so not only gives us a chance to avoid violence, it builds the foundation of organized movement necessary to recruit those, after seeing all avenues pursued to stop oppression, are ready to stand up and declare its end.
This is the way. Massive disobedience with an ultimatum.
