Kind of... Except they're more interested in looking out for their own discipline, and damn the rest. The (UK) NRA wasn't hugely interested in anything other than fullbore TR, so semis & pistols weren't defended. Single issue politics aren't much use when all parties are trying to outdo each other on how tough they are on these strange people who use firearms.

I find it utterly incredible that I used to be trusted to carry a GPMG, yet now have to jump through hoops to own a .22 (and yes, that's one calibre where we still stick to Imperial!).
