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: Interesting fact - Chicago is a city-wide GUN FREE ZONE .. and actually .. if you count the gun murders since the day the US entered the Afghanistan war and put them side by side with US soldier deaths IN Afghanistan since that date? Well .. statistically you're more likely to be shot and killed just LIVING in Chicago's city limits than you are a US SOLDIER FIGHTING IN AFGHANISTAN!

    Chicago - city-wide GUN FREE zone ... more gun deaths in the exact same time period than the world's largest ACTIVE WAR ZONE! INTERESTING, eh?
    • Jun 30 2013: I saw These STATS lol it is an amazing concept. in our Gun free city you're more likely to get killed than anywhere else in the country.
