District court's conviction and imposition of a 92 months' sentence on a defendant for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is affirmed where: 1) the district court was correct in finding that defendant could not avail himself of a justification defense, given the uncontested facts that he had possession of a loaded weapon for over an hour, failed to exhaust all legal avenues open to him and carried the gun outside the apartment; and 2) the within-Guidelines sentence imposed by the court was reasonable.
