Australia Confiscated 640381 Guns in 1996 Costing $500M AU$

In 1996 1 AU $ was worth 1996 .7912 USD so $500M AU$ was worth $395,600,000

Cost calculated in July 2014

Update 9/13/2015
A 1996 US$ is worth $1.52 now(September 2015), so it would cost now $601,312,000 to get 640381 guns which was 56% of the guns in OZ
Estimated 363.3 million guns in US now
56% of that is 203.4 million guns, thats 317.7 times 640381
317.7 times $601,312,000 is $191,040,000,000
