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: Supporters of "gun control" who use the inaccurate political term "assault rifle" and "clips" when describing normal capacity magazines for sporting rifles like the AR-15 etc .. which were DESIGNED to hold 20/30 rounds.. you'd benefit from this ridiculously SIMPLE and ENTIRELY factual presentation. It takes less than 5 minutes and it's VERY easy to understand. Odds are you've bought into inaccurate hype surrounding sporting rifles like the AR-15. You'll learn a LOT in just a few minutes. Oh, and if you refuse to believe the facts presented (which will likely conflict with many folks' pre-conceived bias) you can check their sources and do your own research.

    What have you got to lose? Other than blind hate for inanimate objects, inaccurate bias, and horribly skewed misconceptions about firearms?
