Slapping down Attorney General Eric Holder's support of a federal ban on out-of-state pistol purchases, a Texas federal court has ruled the residency requirement is unconstitutional.

The decision Wednesday from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas was hailed as a major victory for gun rights supporters.

"So a Texan could now walk into a Virginia gun dealer and buy a pistol. Huge decision," second-amendment lawyer Matthew Bergstrom told the Washington Times.
