"Should a middle ground be

"Should a middle ground be sought over what type of weapon a person can arm themselves with to protect person and property?"

No, because the other, perhaps more important benefit of gun rights is it gives the people the ability to overthrow their government when (not if) it becomes too corrupt to save in any other way. When a corrupt government can dictate what weapon an individual can and cannot have, it can always ensure its power over the people.

This isn't really about something so specific as which guns are okay and which are not. This about the basic concept of liberty. As someone who posts an image supporting Ron Paul with each of your messages, I'm surprised that you push back against him and the idea that individuals have the -right- to do as they please, so long as they do not infringe on the rights of others. That is what Ron Paul talks about every day, and your position does everything but support what he stands for.
