A compulsory turn-in, whether monetarily compensated or not, would be a very, very foolish thing for Sen. Feinstein and Gov. Cuomo to do. While the chances of a '94 style AWB passing Constitutional muster are probably about 50/50, those chances would diminish greatly if some sort of confiscation were included as I very much doubt that the courts, SCOTUS in particular, would look favorably on such a thing. Likewise, confiscation would, in essence, prove all the people that the other side has been trying to paint as paranoid to be right and the political fallout would likely be substantial.
