Greatest problem with gun control

As  Beto O'Rourke explains exactly how his administration would collect banned firearms - without banging on everyone's doors - it reveals the greatest flaw in the idea.
Exit question via Drew McCoy: Isn’t Beto giving away the game here by stressing his belief that Americans will comply voluntarily with the law? People willing to surrender their weapons upon a lawful demand by the feds are by definition “law-abiding.” If you’re worried about mass shootings but unwilling to go door to door to look for assault rifles, it’s inevitable that virtually all of the people whom you end up disarming are people whom you didn’t need to worry about in the first place.
