'Compromise' on gun rights inevitably surrenders Constitutional high ground

The instant we put Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human rights (such as the right to conduct firearms transactions privately) on the bargaining table, subject to exchange for fuller recognition of other rights--even if on what seem very favorable terms--we have, to paraphrase the joke, already established what kind of Constitutional rights advocates we are.

We have now surrendered any reasonable expectation of respect for the sanctity of our rights, because we have shown no such reverence ourselves.

I will not, to once again paraphrase the joke, haggle over the price of my rights, and nor do I authorize anyone else to do so on my behalf. The price is blood--enough to refresh a certain famous tree. Any takers? [More]
