You cannot effectively control firearms. The people you don't want to have them will have them.

If I could have only one item of gun regulation reform it would be this; every gun confiscated during the commission of a crime should be back tracked to determine how the gun fell into the criminals hands, and then this information must be made public.

This alone would go miles towards stemming gun violence because the public will be outraged and demand action when they see how criminals actually get their guns and who is complicit in this trade.

Of course the NRA and the gun industry would never tolerate such reform, it would severely erode their position and their profit. The thing the NRA and the gun lobby fears most is the gathering and dissemination of data on gun violence, the burns.
