I'd suggest approaching gun control from the top. First, get rid of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, large artillery, armor, long-range missiles, warships. Work down through the medium stuff. Finally, begin collecting and destroying machine guns and other offensive weapons, not only from the citizenry but the police and the military (if any). The working class and the poor should be the _last_ to give up their weapons.

As above, so below. Above goes first.
