Here, here. I commented on that earlier, as well.

It wasn't said 'successful' defense. The concept is simple really. Take
Poland. What would Hitler's troops have done if they went into Poland
and had to not only dodge bullets from soldiers, but every citizen?
Granted, the idea of every citizen having a gun is ridiculous, but it
does make planning a lot more difficult (and defense easier) when you
don't know who exactly does have a gun.


"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire,
a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it
be left to irresponsible action."

- George Washington, in a speech of January 7, 1790
