A "more acceptable" ban at first, with 10-round magazines, and no evil "assault-rifles". Then they'll wait for another, inevitable murder (as we're not addressing real problems in the society this is bound to happen again relatively soon) with either a handgun or one of the "unbanned" semi-rifles to further the ban, and possibly bring the registration. Then they will wait for it to , again inevitably, happen again, and they'll further increase the severity of the ban and so forth.
This can be done in 10-15 year increments until the people get accustomed to their new limitations. One need look no further than the Hughes Amedment in 1986. This amendment prevented ordinary citizens from owning real assault-rifles and modern machine guns (prior to this you'd be able to get them under the NFA for a reasonable, normal price. Today you can only get pre-1986 machine guns, and they are largely limited to rich collectors due to the price inflation via artificial scarcity that the Hughes Amendment imposed on them). So, today it's almost accepted as that it'd be really weird to be able to buy "machine guns" , yet for a period of 50 years people were able to buy them without any incidents. Today we're fighting for the right to have a plain ol' semi-auto rifle. Once they take that away they'll be coming for handguns and revolvers.
These things happen in small steps , not all at once.
