There was a well trained militia that went up against armed Americans before- they were from England. They lost. I agree a sophisticated military could smoke most civilian hunters, but I think I'll hold on to my weaponry anyway.

PS - We are fighting a war against terrorists while trying to keep civilian casualties at a minimum, that is totally different than just shooting everyone you please like an invading force would.

Yeah, the Americans in the "War of Independence" were ragged, and did not play by the current rules, but they did NOT face a British Militia. They were well trained British Soldiers.
I believe from what I've read, even the "Americans" or "colonists" applied to the rules of war and wore "uniforms".
There is a sacred sense to a uniform and the rules of war.

Japan's overall strategic plan in attacking Pearl Harbor was to knock out the pacific fleet while simultaneously seizing Malaya,Dutch East Indies, Midway,and the Philippines,thereby giving them time to establish a defensive perimeter in the western pacific that would deny the U.S. any viable bases (other than Hawaii)for striking back,and further to prevent any U.S. fleet reaching American bases in New Zealand or Australia. The Japanese would then dig in,heavily fortify their perimeter and wage a war of attrition until American support for the war flagged.
Unfortunately for them they failed in their first attempt to close a vital hole in the perimeter,no pacific carrier fleet at Pearl Harbor and the loss at Midway.
Japan did not have the logistics to move men and equipment to attack California even if they had sank the carrier fleet at Pearl,they did not want a long fight on the U.S. mainland so no intent there.Could not find any confirming evidence supporting a high Japanese official quoting we cannot invade because of "a gun behind every bush and tree". although Yamamoto,after Pearl Harbor did say "I am afraid we have awoken a sleeping giant.
