That is not the point. The point is that in the instance of tyrannical rule, a militia would be better able to protect itself than with their bare hands. Real tyranny, not your "tyranny" of the last couple of years.
Look up the Iraqi insurrections, Soviet-Afghani conflict, Hungarian Revolution of 1956, etc.
All cases where citizens with guns helped fight against tyranny.
