12. Regarding defense against invasion and defense against our own govt

The theory is that our large amount of civilian owned guns would support a massive insurgency in the event of invasion. Just look at Afghanistan or Vietnam. Scattered fighters with weapons can wage a continued war of attrition against an occupying force.

As for overthrowing our government, obviously people don't believe they will take on the military with some AR15s. The real theory is that the guns are to go after politicians who would use the military/police to victimize our population.
