That sums it up and that's been the problem with the NRA PR lately. They're preaching to the choir. They're flexing their muscles, and they're reminding those who let their membership lapse to renew it.
What we need are people who can talk to those on the fence, or those willing to listen - and there are plenty of those.
We won't win this either by making it political. We need to bridge a cultural gap.
