Why should I even bother posting if you're going to write my replies?
To correct me when I'm wrong.
So, was I?
How will that get guns out of the hands of criminals?
In the short term? No idea how effective it will be. Look over what happened with Australia, I guess.
Long term, as the gun concentration goes down, more and more get confiscated after being used in crime it gets harder and harder for criminals to get their hands on them.
Actually, I just had a strange though. Ban the sale of new guns, effective immediately. It will ultimately concentrate the weapons in the hands of the "law abiding" citizens, because they'll never be used for crime and confiscated. (Because, again, the citizens are law-abiding.) It will get harder and harder for criminals to get their hands on weapons over time, but all the citizens will still have their boomsticks left over. (Assuming they didn't try to rob a bank or something. ^_^)
It could use some refinement, but it's not taking away your rights, at least not as I see it.

That is bar far the dumbest response here yet.
Limiting a magazine to a certain arbitrary number doesn't stop anything. You do realize that the same amount of rounds can be shot out of a firearm, in the same relative amount of time using either a 16 round mag, or (2) 8 round mags.
I bet you think Gun Free Zones stop shootings as well.
