People v. Perry, 62

In a prosecution in which the defendant was convicted of second degree weapon possession--i.e., possession with the intent to use the weapon unlawfully against another--the Appellate Division's order vacating the conviction is reversed, where there was no reasonable view of the evidence on which the defendant did not, while possessing a firearm, at least intend to commit the crime of menacing, and his statements amount to a confession that he intentionally committed that crime.
