Judge holds gun ban for felony defendants unconstitutional
A U.S. judge in West Texas has ruled unconstitutional a federal law banning those under felony indictments from buying guns.
U.S. District Judge David Counts, whom then-President Donald Trump appointed to the federal bench in Pecos, Texas, dismissed a federal indictment against Jose Gomez Quiroz that had charged him under the federal ban.
