What if they confiscate all the food and medicine first? Will they tell us to turn in our weapons for these items. Can you hear the screams of your children for clean water, food, and medicine but in order to get it you must turn in all weapons!

Take it a few steps further, have them simply shut down the power grid and see how fast people break, especially if its done during the summer. If you cut off all power at the onset of July in the US and told the population that all firearms must be turned in before the power came back on you would probably see the last few stragglers happily bringing in their gear by the end of the month. There are plenty of ways that the government can and eventually will leverage the people into complete disarmament.
