I think that many on here empathize with your convictions in wanting to remove guns from the hands of those who don't know how to use them/are able to show restraint to not use them except under extreme situations. Any responsible adult would be ok with the suggestions that you mentioned... It's just the fact that many on here have been around firearms most of our lives and they have gained a treasured status.
The idiots at the NRA do not represent us in their statement here. They are a lobbyist group, and they feel like they are doing damage control by playing with Salem Witch Trials fear. We, as a people, have the right to defend ourselves, our loved ones, and the defenseless. If the bad guys, who don't care about the laws that you are promoting and we are ok with, have a firearm and you do not, then your only recourse is to either give in and possibly endanger yourself/whoever you would have been protecting or risk confronting an armed man while you are unarmed.
I am pessimistic about humanity. I am not going to 'throw down' at the drop of a hat, but I will not give up my right to do what I must to protect myself and/or others.
