I can agree with you that we need to eliminate criminals using guns. My concern is that if all of the law abiding get in line to rid themselves of their legal guns, do you really believe the criminal, gun toting gang bangers are going to be in line behind them? The criminals will never turn over their guns. At that point it will be like the old saying, "When handguns are outlawed, only the outlaws will have handguns."
