The Second Amendment’s true purpose is to guarantee Americans the right—and to insure for them the ability to perform the duty—to defend their communities, to the end of securing “a free State” at every level of the federal system throughout this country. Ultimately, the Second Amendment provides for the perpetuation of those “well regulated Militia” which it declares to be “necessary to the security of a free State”. Mere individuals and families—as isolated individuals and families—cannot possibly succeed through individual self-defense in thwarting the kinds of threats most likely to endanger “the security of a free State”.

If the author wishes to ignore the founders reasons for wording the 2A the way they did, he can make any asinine conclusions that he does, he is a tool of the tyranical government.

Just the fact that we have an armed populace, has historically up to present day been a preventive of the feds overstepping their authority. Without the 2nd and an armed populace, we'd already would be living under a truly tyrannical dictator. Without a single shot being fired for this purpose.

"Mere individuals and families—as isolated individuals and families—cannot possibly succeed through individual self-defense in thwarting the kinds of threats most likely to endanger 'the security of a free State'."

So what?
So then we arrive at yet another twisted argument that "the right OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms ..." is, in "reality," NOT an individual right, but the old degenerate "collective" right of a "group."
No country HAS EVER raised an army and refused them weapons, since for soldiers weapons are needed. Even Hitler armed his military.
No one debates arming soldiers.
The second amendment protects the right of THE PEOPLE.
That's US. "WE, THE PEOPLE."

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. — Robert Heinlein
