There are already tons of laws at the federal and state level that prevent convicted felons from purchasing guns. Any federal felon is prohibited from purchasing a gun, and that's applicable everywhere in the US. And only a Presidential pardon can change that. State laws vary from state to state.
And all that is kinda pointless, since creating new laws isn't going to affect the criminals much. And even if we did ban firearms, criminals could simply make their own guns using common legal supplies found at any hardware store.
Google "How to make a gun", and take a look at a few of the results.
