Please do not discount those who use VHF. Having an exterior antenna benefits them greatly. I am currently using a copper pipe j-Pole in my upstairs bedroom, and have troubles reaching some repeaters I can hit from my car.

Yes, and the ratio of those residents to amateur radio licensees is about 100:1. And half of those licensees are Technicians who don't use HF. 

Even if the ARRL was the world's most effective inrterest group in terms of lobbying, it would be a miracle to get complete legislative relief. The NRA is considered to be highly effective by both supporters and opponents of gun control, but the NRA has 5.5 million members... more than 30 times the size of the ARRL.Even the Sierra Club is 4 times larger than the ARRL.
