Also, criminals generally steal guns rather than buy them

The obvious counterpoint is that if there's no guns to steal, criminals will be unarmed. A stronger point is "criminals generally buy guns on the black market." Probably more accurate too.

Guns will still exist, it will just be harder to get them. If we 100% outlaw guns right now, guns will still be in the hands of anyone who previously owned a gun. Those who want a "new" gun will need to look hard for it, but is still obtainable.

Right. Hence why it's important to emphasise black market rather than stolen gun. Stolen guns aren't the only source of guns on the black market.

That's also a very good point actually.
