The problem is, once the SHTF, he can declare and suspend whatever he wants. Good luck against a few hundred million people or even just a few million...
Plus take the proportion of armed forces that would tell him to go screw himself instead of attacking/policing their own...
Seems like an epic fail on his part.
And then, yes, take all the have nots and figure them into the mix. It would not be pretty but I doubt there is much he could do at that point. Nature would kinda take it's course and hopefully the good guys come out on top.
