The problem has always been that criminals will still have access to guns because the banning of desirables actually increases access via the resulting highly profitable black markets.

The only ones with such weapons will be criminals and the government, leaving the vast mass of law-abiding people defenseless.

de jure - "according to law; by right"

Many say the United States has been a "de facto" power since the civil war, meaning that they are the government in fact, but also meaning that they are not the government "by right", as military force was and is used against the people to assert control.

In other words, NOT "for the people, by the people".
