If your state government tries to make a law and force you to get rid of your mags after you already own them then they are in direct violation of the Constitution.
Even if they did somehow get around that (not likely), they would have to get a warrant to come and take them. A warrant for each home that is. With probable cause.
Blanket warrants are also expressly forbidden.

Illegal search and seizure gets even the gun haters panties in a wad.
