Sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm is affirmed where the district court did not err in determining that defendant's prior conviction under Arkansas law for possession of a sawed-off shotgun was a violent felony under 18 U.S.C. sec. 924(e)(1), as the offense was similar in kind and in degree of risk posed to the offenses listed in the guidelines.
