Why manufacture a whole new set of criminals?

If you were the legal owner of an assault weapon and it became illegal to own one, there are some mechanisms set to allow you to hand down your weapon legally.

You would become a criminal if you did not hand down your weapon, but then you would have omitted doing something that was your responsibility to do in due time, and such put yourself in the criminal boots (like if you omit to pay your taxes when you know there is a deadline).
