firearm in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 922(g)(1) and 924(e) and was sentenced to
46 months of imprisonment and a two-year term of supervised release. He
§ 2K2.1(a)(4)(A), which states that the base offense level is 20 if the offense
occurred after a felony conviction for a crime of violence (“COV”).
Hobdy avers that his Texas robbery conviction no longer qualifies as a
COV because the former residual clause and accompanying commentary of
U.S.S.G. § 4B1.2(a)(2) are invalid in light of Johnson v. United States,
135 S. Ct. 2551 (2015). That argument is unavailing, see Beckles v. United
States, 137 S. Ct. 886, 892 (2017), and Texas robbery qualifies as an enumerated COV under the former commentary to § 4B1.2. See United States v.
Flores-Vasquez, 641 F.3d 667, 670 n.1 (5th Cir. 2011); United States v.
Santiesteban-Hernandez, 469 F.3d 376, 380–81 (5th Cir. 2006), overruled on
other grounds by United States v. Rodriguez, 711 F.3d 541, 547–63 (5th Cir.
2013) (en banc). We need not address Hobdy’s argument that Texas robbery
does not constitute a COV under § 4B1.2 because it lacks the element of use,
threatened use, or attempted use of force.
