We minimize but we don't eliminate. Cost/benefit. Gun haters don't see a benefit to private ownership.
In a modern economy, there is little to no benefit to the private ownership of guns. They should all be eliminated. They won't be, and as Morley says, that's not even on the table.

Should I post for you the gun laws of the top nations beating out the United States in terms of economic freedom, according to the far-right Heritage Foundation? Whether it's regulation, licensing, tracking, or outright banning, the most promising countries in the world, according to the most prestigious pro-Trump right-wing thinktank, all exist in greater prosperity than the United States while simultaneously restricting or banning guns.

Banning guns, and being a tremendously free and prosperous economy are possible simultaneously, and the norm rather than the exception, according to the Right's own source.
