In 2014, Cliven Bundy called for support against the BLM and people from all over the country arrived armed and ready for conflict. This wasn't about Bundy's predicament per se, but many people came and supported him out of a root cause of disdain for the federal government and the Obama Administration. History does not care about the facts underlying the spark that leads to revolution.
The first shots in the gun control war will probably be an incident like this weekend's that gets out of hand. Patriots will begin engaging police and if there are sufficient numbers of patriots, it may escalate into an infantry engagement. It will get ugly. We'd all like resistance to tyranny to start over a "righteous" cause, but the casus belli is more often a symbol more than a hero.
