37. or add some traffic to outdoor life or sports.

They do not represent Dems

I don't know about concealed carry specific, but Dems are more diverse than you give us credit for.
, let alone Liberal Progressive Dems

Liberal and progressive are two different concepts. One can be liberal without being progressive. That does not mean one embraces all of the things classical liberals think. Progressive means move forward or change. Not all progressive ideas are good ideas, or they may be good ideas but may have negative side effects. Most things go full circle and be progressive and reactionary at the same time. Liberalized CCW is "liberal" in the classical sense. It is also simultaneously progressive and reactionary at the same time. It is progressive if you look at only the last 100 years. Prior to that, it is kind of a mixed bag.
Can one be a progressive without being liberal? Historically this has happened. Creationist and socialist William Jennings Bryant comes to mind.

Now you suggest we turn the most lively group on DU into a circle jerk for gun lovers.

It could, although I think technical information is good thing to know if you are going propose good regulation. That said, I would hate to see the place become a circle jerk for either side. The fact that it is not a circle jerk is what adds to its liveliness. I learn from the other groups I read, but I rarely have much to say there. Somethings can overlap. Why is this different than other civil liberties and not part of Civil Liberties, I already know the answer.
hunting is outdoor life
target shooting is sports
reloading is ummm Frugal and Energy Efficient Living
or some of them could overlap to rural/farm life
engraving could be in Art and Humanities like Crafts and Artists.
