Just read federalist 46, it says all one needs to know about the purpose of the second ammendment. Anoher place people go wrong is inthe interpretation of 'state". In the second ammendment state refers to the indivudual states not the the federal sense of state. The individual states are suposed to be able to defend themselves against the tyranny of an out of control federal state. That is the purpose of the militias. It is not just external forces a republic has to worry about.
