Our political system is one giant exercise of the pot calling the kettle black...unfortunately neither side has seemed to recognize that yet...
The same sex marriage debate isn't really about banning anything. If you ban guns, you take away the ability for a person to legally possess guns. If you "ban" same sex marriage, you don't take away the ability for a person to form lifelong commitments to a partner of the same sex.

"Banning" same sex marriage is more like saying we're not going to give a tax break and a host of other special government benefits (which, to be fair, are substantial) to people who possess guns.
