    . . .

    The Act also makes the magazines non-transferable, and so it would also be a federal crime for Americans to carry pre-H.R. 308 normal capacity magazines if they did not also possess them prior to enactment of the bill. The constitutional "time-shifting" doctrine thus implied by McCarthy's magazine ban is that the power of Congress to ban the possession of any item is unlimited if the item is possessed in the future by any person not previously in possession of the item.

    No co sponsors of any reelevance, and not even out of committee, so nothing to be "activist" about yet.
