22-CR-254 USA v. Johnson
Decision and Order
The court denied the defendant’s motion to dismiss the indictment charging him with possessing ammunition as a felon, contrary to 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1). The court rejected the defendant’s Second Amendment argument, finding § 922(g)(1) constitutional under the “text and history” test set forth in N.Y. State Rifle & Pistol Ass’n v. Bruen, 142 S. Ct. 2111 (2022). The court also rejected an as-applied challenge, finding that the Second Amendment did not require felony-by-felony litigation regarding the constitutionality of § 922(g)(1).
