I agree with everything you said, however there's a flaw in the above statement. If guns were illegal completely, then it's true, far less legally
guns would get through to the black market, however it would open up an enormous underground weapons production and distribution market,
and enough would get through to satisfy every criminal who wants them.
Add to that the fact that 100% of those would end up in the hands of violent criminals, and in the end, it would change nothing except make it illegal
to defend yourself against them.
ETA: Not to mention that all of the criminals who want guns already have them. There is NO WAY you're going to get those guns turned in willingly.
Again, only the law-abiding would turn them in, and that's only if there were no 2nd Amendment.
