**Landmark **: In a unanimous decision, a three-judge panel decided on Wednesday to overturn the conviction of a man sentenced to almost four years in prison. This individual had been apprehended with firearms and admitted to occasional cannabis use. The **Second victory** is based on a 2022 Supreme Court ruling that mandates firearm restrictions to align with the historical context of the Second Amendment’s original ratification in 1791.
