Conviction for firearms possession is affirmed where: 1) the arresting officers' questions fell within the public safety exception to Miranda, and thus defendant's statements in response were admissible; 2) the district court did not err in determining that defendant voluntarily consented to the search of his vehicle as defendant's intoxication did not render his consent to search his vehicle involuntary and unknowing.
