Fighting our enemies and yes they are protecting us.
Of course you are correct.

What I have heard Walter Dellinger say in other interviews is that if a state wanted to raise a militia and arm it, Congress couldn't stop them from doing so and that was what the 2A protected. SCOTUS disagreed.
I didn't realize you were referring to Heller. How did they disagree? I don't recall anything in the text of Heller about the rights a of states to raise militias.

Saying the right is not necessarily linked to militia service isn't the same thing as saying the right of a state to raise a militias no longer exists, or that the right of the people to keep arms suitable for militia use is no longer protected.
