Of course. Reasonable people should be able to come to a reasonable compromise that protects the rights off all.

That's the problem, though. That word "reasonable." There are just way too many people--let's be honest, on both sides of this issue--who refuse to be reasonable. So it is going to come down to whoever can muster the political clout to get what they want.

It is unfortunate that it has to come to that, but that seems to be the way most such things get resolved these days.
