Ban 'em all, as Dianne wants, I'd go further, reduce 'em all to muskets, no semi-auto or auto at all, if in a collection, weld 'em up, certified inoperable.. The rest, grind 'em up, make something useful from them.

When they're all outlawed, only outlaws will have them. We can't keep people who aren't supposed to be here and drugs that aren't supposed to be here from entering the country by the metric ton, what makes anyone think that shutting down American businesses and confiscating every single gun in the country will actually keep guns out of the hands of those who already have criminal intent? Someone who wants to murder someone is already ignoring the "Thou shall not murder" law, of course they have no problem with the "Thou shall not possess Tool XYZ" law, just as they've shown that they don't care about the "Thou shall not bring Tool XYZ past this magic 'Not allowed here' sign" law! But the 99.7% of current gun-owners who haven't broken any laws won't want to break either one and therefore will be disarmed and defenseless against those who will break it.
