If they are in prison, then they won't be able to get firearms. Currently we have laws to keep guns out of the hands of felons, they don't work. The only thing that works is to keep the felons in prison.
Do you really think that if only murders, robbers, and rapists didn't have guns; that we would be safe from them?
