We shouldn’t “take them away” from people who currently own them, necessarily. That would likely cause just as many problems. I’m sure there are more than a few disgruntled gun owners out there who would take a ban as an assault on liberty, and act accordingly. We should, rather, phase them out over time, similar to the way in which the CPSC dealt with drop-sides. Allow those who currently own guns to keep them, but ban the future manufacture, sale and resale of guns and ammunition for personal use.

[Don’t ever let anyone get away with telling you that no one wants to take your guns.
“More than a few”? I suggest they put some numbers in their spreadsheet and reevaluate the consequences.—Joe]
