Edit: Both Sides Must Give On Guns

Today's Spokesman-Review editorial calls for both extremes to give a little on guns:

A debate on what to do next is being waged in Congress and across the land. State legislatures will soon be inundated with gun-related bills. Passions are high, but those battling this out on the extremes should come to grips with the fact their unrealistic positions will merely impede any progress toward greater security. On the gun control side, activists need to accept the long history of gun ownership in America. Insulting law-abiding gun owners or demeaning their motives only exacerbates suspicions that any new regulation is a stepping-stone to confiscation. On the other hand, the gun lobby must stop treating all proposals as assaults on the Second Amendment. More here.

Question: Is there room to compromise on guns?
