How about adding a fee to the purchase of every single gun. It's hard to figure out how many guns are sold per year but one stat that is available is the number of background checks done each year for the purchase of a gun. It is roughly 17M per year. So, $18B/17M background checks is >$1,000 per background check. You could just round the fee to $1,000.
