66. millions

I don't think you understand the scope of what would be banned under the proposed legislation, only NEWLY MANUFACTURED high capacity magazines would be banned, any that were in existence prior to the date of the enactment of the bill would be perfectly legal to own and sell. There are tens of millions of those magazines in existence. During the last AWB bill, they were readily available and they will be under the proposed ban, which is unlikely to be passed.

You and others have the illusion that passing the proposed AWB will result in the disappearance of high capacity magazines and "scary" looking assault weapons, when all that will happen is that prices will go up slightly and manufacturers will remove some cosmetic features like flash suppressors and pistol grips, from the guns they are producing and selling, none of which will have a tangible impact on reducing the availability or the functionality of semi-automatic weapons.
