When the Constitution was written, there was no police or military, except for the British, who were there more to control than protect. The citizens were armed and they were the ones who formed a "well-regulated militia" when they were called. What do you think Paul Revere's ride was? It was a call to the citizens to pick up their guns and protect themselves and their city.
