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: here in japan the ban on guns works great. i don't have to worry about criminals having guns because they can't get guns. there are no ordinary people to steal them from and if they did get one they will be arrested before they get to use it in a crime. i watched a report some time ago actually where a few gang members clearly said they deliberately avoided guns because it gave police a reason to put them in jail.
