U.S. v. RICKETTS, 01-1055/1296

Use of a firearm and committing a firearm murder in connection with a drug conspiracy, under 18 U.S.C. sections 924(c) and 924(i), are within Congress' Commerce Power. Refusal to give proposed jury instruction concerning impeachment by prior inconsistent statements was not an abuse of discretion.
