Exactly the same problem as banning guns, the people don't want it to happen, so it won't happen.
Heck, America has tons of shows and movies where the main characters are 'bad guys' or act like 'bad guys'. Being able to kill people left and right is a power fantasy. It's not surprising that when you hand every Tom, Dick, and Mary easy access to a way to kill lots of people, some nominal percentage decide to use it.
