No matter what they say, such a move would have no effect at all on any real baddies, but would put everyone one else at serious risk.

As a comparison, in the UK guns are very tightly controlled and licensed, yet still the crims seem to get them, and in central London (the most watched city in the UK - and possibly the world) there has been an increase in gun crime, including multiple murders.

P.S. I'm not advocating letting everyone have guns, just pointing out that prohibitions don't work.
