It's nuts to believe that criminals are going to stop using guns
just because you have banned them from the law abiding people.
Criminals by definition break laws.
It's nuts to believe that the law abiding gun owners are just
latent criminals waiting for a chance to snap and do violence.
It's nuts to believe that a very few guns in the hands of the
police will make you safe. The police, just like everybody else
are prone to being human. They are also prone to having their
possessions (guns) stolen.
