Well the only problem here in the US is that owning a gun is a very well cared and worshiped article in our constitution and no American patriot will ever, ever will allow that to be taken away.
Yes in the US you need a license to carry certain weapons.

2nd amendment reads, according to wikipedia:
“ A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. ”
"The tradition of securing a military force through a duty of universal military obligation for all able-bodied males follows from the Elizabethan era militia in England.
Where is the need?
There isn't a need, there's a WANT......

Taking away the guns, will make the criminals have to get out of the car, and go stab the person they wish to harm. They will not say..."well since we dont have guns...I guess ill just forget about this, and go to bed".
