How would you feel if the government carried out a serious ban on guns?

Here in China, the government doesn't allow the free gun sales and the man who want to have his gun (usully for protecting the forest or animals) legally must have the arm licence which is also hard to obtain.
But I hear about that in many other countries ,any adult can buy guns freely just as biscuits.But as you all know, terrible shooting accidents are happening now and then.
Does your government start to draw out decrees over gun control or gun ban?How do you feel if the government carry it out seriously? I just want to know your true feeling without any offence.Thank you!

    Jun 28 2013: I think there should be a background check. I think there should be a national database of gun owners. People who own guns must be required to keep them locked in a separate place from the bullets. I've been reading a lot lately about people who leave loaded guns lying around their house "for protection" and get killed by their children or their children shoot themselves or another child. I think there needs to be stiff penalties for people who are so careless.
