Default Why not let Democrats enact total gun control and raise the top marginal rate to 1?

I'd like the Democrats to just raise the top marginal income tax rate to 100% and to allow only the military and the police to keep and bear arms.

There are 2 possible scenarios (one would prove the conservative argument right, the other would prove the liberals right) with each one and there is no way for anyone to know how it would turn out until we try it. We already have suffer a lot of gun restrictions now and the Republicans want even more revenue by taking "closing loopholes" (in other words, they want to take away deductions). We risk going to zero freedom (never getting our guns and money back), but then we also would have the chance to have tax levels and gun rights restored to what they were before Washington took office (or at least to 1790 levels).

Is it a good idea? Why or why not?
