It wouldn't, at least not all at once. Which is why "gun control" efforts in the US are always incremental, removing selected firearms or groups of "undesirables". Or such measures as restricting ammunition.
So the lefty libs that want gun control are undeterred by the logistical details of getting rid of 300 million plus firearms in the hands of 90-100 million Americans; they rarely admit in the first place that their goal is a total gun ban eventually (it is instead only to impose "sane", "sober", "sensible", "reasonable" restrictions). Secondly, on the rare occasions they admit they want to ban guns in total they say thing like "well you have to start somewhere" or words to that effect. These are the same lefty libs that denounce/mock Trump for saying he wants to build a wall around our southern border and deport 11 million or so illegals as crazy/insane/out of touch with reality. Obviously the difference is that they really, really want to ban guns and don't care how long it takes, how difficult it would be, or how much it would cost; whereas they don't want to do much about illegals because among other reasons they see them as reliable liberal voters at some point in the future.
