    I have an idea for a gun freedom/ control compromise. How about this? Americans can own any small arm they want. Full auto, grenade launcher, short barreled shotgun, whatever. Think about it. We can't own artilery, fighter jets, missles, ect.

    You could own a jet fighter only money dictates the quality of it . But no toys for it for sure.

    Um, but you can own all the above, just within limitations, hell I was talking to an old guy who used to live in Rural Alaska, after the Soviet Union broke up, he helped a buddy who went to Russia and bough a few 'surplus aircraft'

    He had ATF and FAA inspectors waiting at the airstrip when he landed, the ATF dismounted the cannons and demilled them, the FAA check the aircraft and gave him his certificates.

    You can now see them at airshows....
    personally I'd the the constitutional compromise, sides that, DO you know how much it cost of feed a FA, or an artillery piece????

    OP - your heart is in the right place, but you might want to sit back and read a little bit here before posting. As mentioned, all of the things you mentioned are already legal. Somewhat restricted, but possible to own.

    Unknown, I'm not sure what you're goal is here.

    As others have said, all that stuff is legal, and not very hard, to own in many (most?) states. (That includes the jets and the artillery, by the way.)

    But that's beside the point. Who are you trying to compromise WITH? What are you proposing to give away to exercise this right we already have?

    Actually, look, let's do this: We just had a thread on "Compromising with the Anti Bloc." It is here: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=568152

    Unknown, lets pause this thread for lack of direction, and redirect to the more focused one above. If you read through that thread and still want to discuss a derisory hypothetical compromise on some aspect of gun ownership, send me a PM and we'll consider that.
