Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has lost his right to carry a concealed handgun in Texas, RAW STORY has learned.

A Texas website, Brazosriver, was the first (to the knowledge of RAW STORY) to post a judge's order to suspend DeLay's license. Under Texas law, indicted felons are not allowed to carry concealed handguns.

Attorneys for DeLay have appealed the order, and it will be heard by the Republican County Court at Law. There are no Democratic judges in the county, according to the site that revealed the documents.
