retroactive laws aren't a thing, so it was probably removed since it was just inflammatory...

"Ex post facto is most typically used to refer to a criminal statute that punishes actions retroactively, thereby criminalizing conduct that was legal when originally performed. Two clauses in the United States Constitution prohibit ex post facto laws:

Art 1, 9
This prohibits Congress from passing any laws which apply ex post facto.
Art. 1 10.
This prohibits the states from passing any laws which apply ex post facto."

So no, you won't be made a felon retroactively!
