One of the justifications for a broad interpretation of the second amendment is that it allows citizens the option of overthrowing the government if things get too bad.
In short, since our military has a tanks, missiles, etc, is it even possible?
It is. It's certainly not easy and probably much much tougher now than back in the days of the Revolution. But if you get enough people behind the cause, you can do it. Additionally, if there was an actual rebellion, you'd at the least split the military. While some may be faithful to the government, many others wouldn't raise arms against their brethren and family.

You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
