I would agree with a lot of your assessment. I have been going to MD a lot lately and started perusing the MD Shooters forum. They seem 'soft' or PC, whatever you want to call it. I saw once a pro gun bill 'almost' made it out of committee and they acted like it was some sort of victory. I don't get it. But it's their business so I don't say anything.
On another note it does seem they are doing a decent job of raising awareness among the citizenry, the more their numbers grow the more weight they can throw around.
