A federal judge in Texas rules an indictment cannot be the basis for the loss of your 2nd Amendment rights. This came about based on a review of a conviction for lying on form 4473 where an individual said he was not under indictment. The judge said that based on the new standard of scrutiny as a result of Bruen the question of indictment on form 4473 is unconstitutional, so the individual's conviction for lying about the indictment on the form was immaterial.

This seems to raise questions about red flag laws and whether anything short of an actual felony conviction can be the basis for confiscating an individual's firearms. Of course this would only be a question in the United States and since we know NY is not part of the U.S. this decision is of little consequence here.
