Conviction and sentence for firearms possession is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress evidence as the police had probably cause to enter the apartment; and 2) defendant's above guidelines sentence was not an abuse of discretion, as it was not unreasonable for the court to conclude that defendant is a menace and an above-Guidelines sentence was needed to deter further criminal activity.
