A couple of comments at a pro-Second Amendment Facebook group: 

Say there are 100,000,000 firearms that fall into this category. The possible Registration fee could be $200.00 per firearm. This is in line with Class three firearms. The total is $20,000,000,000. That is Twenty Billion dollars. The tax scheme part of this plan is just exactly what they want. There could also be annual fees per firearm. This is all Theory but it is in line with what some have discussed in the past.

George it is a lot of money however I doubt the driving force is anything other than the eventual disarmament of Americans. Collecting $20 Billion on the way is just icing on the cake

Good point. Of course, with the FedGov, it will cost 100 Billion per year to collect that 20 Billion.

About 1/3rd of what I own falls under that list.

Going back to your $200 tax thought. I just remembered that the 1934 gun ban that impacted things like Thompsons and short barrel shotguns had a licensing tax of $200 per weapon for those who could posses. That makes me think that if they use that as a case example, taking into account inflation, we may be looking at a $2000 tax instead.

They will simply price out possession for most people or make criminals of us all.

Disarmament of the American people, by any means necessary.
