the only way a militia may be called out is by the state government ... and the militia will answer to state authorities only (not themselves)
But the state authorities have to answer to the people of that State, and the people are the militia, so it seems to me that there could be situations in which the militia i.e. the whole people of a state are the final authority and would answer to themselves ... securing a free state.

To that I give you United Airlines flight #93. Those people acted as and were the militia.
It seems to me that Virginians could be a conquered people under military rule with no free State and the death penalty for any who form militia, yet we could still defend ourselves against something like flight #93.
