The issue with these proposals is two-fold:

1) They don't grandfather existing magazines. That violates ex post facto.

2) They require the magazines to be turned in for destruction without compensation. This violates the 5th Amendment as a "taking".

How are these laws not even being talked about violating the US Constitution on this basis? Forget the 2nd Amendment, this violates other aspects of the Constitution as well and should be argued on that point, in my opinion.
