Texas judge rules that people under felony indictment have the right to buy guns under the Second Amendment

U.S. District Judge David Counts says it’s no longer constitutional to ban people under felony indictment from buying guns. He cites landmark Supreme Court ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association vs. Bruen. It was not immediately clear if the ruling would be appealed. The case arose out of a man who had purchased a gun while under indictment and lied about it during his background check, according to Counts’ ruling. The prosecution says the Second Amendment has always allowed laws restricting the gun rights of groups viewed by legislatures as posing a public-safety risk.
