The whole point is to have

The whole point is to have the ability to fight fire with fire. Nukes aren't going to be used against an individual or small community. The risk with nukes is that they will be used against a nation or region; thus nations will want to arm themselves to counter that threat. When the day comes when tanks are routinely rolling up to front doors (and I think that day might be here) then sure, why shouldn't a family or community have access to a tank to fight back if they can afford them. When did we tell the police force, our employees, that it was okay for them to militarize against the citizens. The second amendment did not forsee the weapons we have today...I believe the spirit of it was to arm citizens to their best ability to counter tyranny on whatever level.
