Especially once the new Jedi order fell apart and Luke fled. The reason the old republic never had an army was because the Jedi were the peacekeepers.The idea that less than 5 years after defeating the Galactic Empire the Republic thinks it's a good idea to completely de-militarise is absolutely mind-boggling as a concept. Forget the fact the Galaxy has just gone through near 30 years of war and turmoil from the Clone Wars through the formation of the Empire through the Rebellion through the mop up of the Empire, but the fact that In-Universe the concept of planets/forces just 'handing in' their ships to be destroyed makes no sense. A Republic that stood for tens of thousands of years, sure, could exist with no Galactic navy because it's come to a point of understanding, but not in the immediate aftermath of such upheaval.
Doing so would make it rather easy for a random fleet of ships from.. I guess let's say the Unknown Regions.. to randomly pop up and take over the Galaxy overnight.
