This is very old policy. Myself, and a lot of the parents of other scouts in my son's troop are very pro 2A. It has nothing to do with location, it is about the BSA policy of no guns. The only time is at officially sanctioned BSA merit badge events, even then no OC/CC for anybody. I'm not going to say to not fight it, but you might have better luck getting them to be accepting of LBGT community. Being that the BSA is a private organization they can make the rules like COSTCO.
