An idea re: 'gun control'

Suggestions were asked for on what we can do about the gun violence.
Since so many killings are done by gangs, both for turf and drug wars, I have an idea.
Laws are re-classified all the time in order to change the sentencing.....such as kidnapping (now it's a Federal felony and the FBI gets involved if the person is taken across state lines).
Why not re-classify gang activity as 'domestic terrorism' since that's what it is anyhow, make it a Federal felony with mandated sentences, and have Homeland Security be involved, since this is a HOMELAND SECURITY issue?
If opposing gangs are tossed into a Federal prison (we have lots of them already and some are standing empty), and they find ways to kill each other off in lockup, so what? If there aren't enough prisons to hold them all, build a huge compound in the desert somewhere, dump them all there (ala Back to New York movie with Kurt Russell), and let them "take care" of each other since they enjoy killing so much.
Obviously the ACLU would be outraged with that last idea so consider it just wishful thinking on my part. But the first part of this is a serious thought of mine.
