Gun owners - follow up to the poll on safes being required

The banning of "assault" weapons is right out. The banning of large capacity magazines is out. Registration of guns is out. Judging by the response in the poll... mandatory securing of a weapon when not in use is out.

I firmly believe that curbing gun violence in the US begins with education and the enforcement of existing laws. That said... is there any compromise to be had on the gun owner side of the argument?

If you are a gun owner... what would you be willing to compromise to find middle ground on this debate?

Violent crime rates particularly violent crimes committed with a gun are down and continue trending down. Crime committed with an "assault weapon" are less than 10% of those crimes. So what exactly are we "witnessing"? Because it looks to me like a bunch of reactionaries standing on the corpses of 20 children to push an agenda they had shelved for just the right disaster.
