(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – BREAKING NOW: A federal judge in Texas appointed to the bench by former President Donald J. Trump has ruled that a federal gun law prohibiting those under criminal indictment from purchasing guns is unconstitutional.
According to an AP reporter in Texas:
“A U.S. law banning those under felony indictments from buying guns is unconstitutional, a federal judge in West Texas ruled Monday.
“U.S. District Judge David Counts, whom then-President Donald Trump appointed to the federal bench, dismissed a federal indictment against Jose Gomez Quiroz that had charged him under the federal ban.
“According to Counts’ ruling, Quiroz was under a state burglary indictment when he tried to buy a .22-caliber semiautomatic handgun and challenged the ensuing federal charge.” [emphasis added]
According to the AP, based on the most recent United States Supreme Court decision concerning the Second Amendment, Judge Counts “ruled the ban unconstitutional as the ‘Second Amendment is not a’ second class right’…’ No longer can courts balance away a constitutional right.'”
