The high court's unanimous ruling builds on a series of cases it has decided since 2013, when it struck down a portion of the state's felony gun law that calls for serious penalties for anyone caught toting a loaded gun outside their home.

Aww...what a sweety quoting what I already wrote when I posted this article. But why didn't you finish quoting it? Just scroll on up there to where it says More and you can read the whole un-selectively-cut statement.
