In a Washington Post op-ed, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) proposes a compromise between gun owners and gun-control activists. 

He argues that, if liberals accept that an individual's right to bear arms exists thanks to the 2008 Supreme Court decision in D.C. v. Heller, "gun owners should be more open to some reasonable limitations" on that right. 

The city-based senator says he learned the importance of gun ownership to many Americans on a hunting trip with Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) -- presumably the 2009 trip that helped win another vote for health-care reform.
