Ban guns and only the criminals will have guns

The second amendment is not about hunting.

A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. - George Washington
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. - Thomas Jefferson
