I wouldn't want one if it wasn't. What you are failing to understand is that criminals, by definition, care not at all about the basic principles of law and order. So while you're busy sacrificing your personal liberties in the name of some perceived notion of law and order, Joe Criminal is scoping out your pad because you're now an easy target. You haven't provided any sound reasoning why I should have to give up my personal liberties due to what criminals do with a certain type of gun, especially one that accounts for so little of overall gun deaths. And that none of those bans or restrictions address, even one iota, the problems of what cause criminal behavior in the first place. So by all means, give up YOUR personal liberties if you feel you must. I'd rather keep mine. You haven't given me a good enough reason why I should.
