The appellant Brandon Moorefield appeals from a jury conviction of one count of possession of firearm after having been convicted of a felony, in violation of 18 U.S.C. A 922 , for which he was sentenced to 70 months' imprisonment. He challenges his conviction on two grounds: first, that the District Court abused its discretion by instructing the jury that they may consider evidence of flight as probative of consciousness of guilt; and second, that A 922 is facially unconstitutional because it exceeds Congress's power to legislate on interstate commerce.
