Court Rules Second Amendment Prohibits Federal Pre-Conviction Firearms Ban
Last week, a federal judge in the Western District of Texas ruled that a law which prohibits the acquisition of firearms by someone who is under felony indictment violates the Second Amendment. The decision to invalidate a major provision of the Gun Control Act of 1968 underscores the gravity of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in New York Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, which prescribed a standard of review that lower courts must apply when resolving Second Amendment cases. The case from the Western District of Texas is United States v. Quiroz.
Makes sense, since 'under indictment' does not mean you've been convicted of anything.
We were told the consequences of that decision would be wide-ranging, and they were right.
