Assuming we have 12 million of those in civilian hands (I've seen estimates between 8 and 20 million), that's six billion dollars. Assuming that half the firearms in civilian ownership are handguns and they offer a median amount of $300, that's 90 billion dollars.

Presented with such numbers, I wonder how many politicians would really feel so strongly about the idea.
Further taxes on guns and ammunition would probably fit well into Feinstein and Cuomo's agendas.
