Defendant's firearm possession conviction and sentence are affirmed where: 1) no Franks violation occurred which would require suppression based on the challenged portions of an affidavit in support of the police's warrant to search defendant's residence; 2) the drug-related evidence introduced at trial, including the paraphernalia, was closely and integrally related to the issue of ownership and possession; and 3) the sentencing transcript establishes that the district court thoroughly considered the 18 U.S.C. section 3553(a) factors.
