I’ll start popping the popcorn

Better make big batches of pop corn. This could get real interesting quick.

If anybody is using an old browser (like me) you don't see the video. Try Chrome or a new browser (like I did) and the video is there.

Unfortunately that's probably not an applicable precedent. In the context of the Civil War the US federal government held that a handful of pro-Union Virginians claiming to be the "real" government of Virginia gave the northwest counties "permission" to form their own state. There was a Supreme Court case over the matter but it was mainly about whether the ratification process had dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's, not the inherent legitimacy of the breakaway.

On the one hand the wanna-be libertarian in me would love to see something that might be termed "armed civil disobedience" happen; on the other hand, governments inherently have to be about authority, and I could see the banners using this as an opportunity to bypass the normal protections of the Constitution to ban guns by fiat.
