I really don't care if making guns illegal would actually succeed in keeping them out of the hands of criminals. I am not willing to sacrifice American liberty for the sake of security. Locking everyone in a cage from 7 pm until 7am would prevent late night crime but I'm not willing to support such an infringement upon my liberty.
Anyone who is willing to sacrifice liberty for security deserves neither.
There are many socialist countries on this Earth... move to one of them if that is your preferred way of life.
