LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.

Byline: The Register-Guard

A grand compromise

Are you fed up with seeing innocent lives ended by violence? Let me offer a solution, a grand compromise.

It requires bold thinking and the brave willingness to give up a liberty you cherish. Lives are at stake. It's time for an unusual collaboration of Second Amendment defenders and abortion rights supporters.

My fellow gun owners: Would you surrender your right to bear arms if it also meant a legal and permanent end to abortion? Abortion rights supporters: Would you give up your right to abortion if it meant private gun ownership was abolished and the Second Amendment was repealed?

It is a compromise we'd all hate, but the result is worth the pain. Let's work together on this.

Think of all the innocent lives that would be saved!
