Robert L. Bobo appeals the judgment of conviction the district court1 entered upon his guilty plea to being a felon in possession of a firearm in violation of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 922(g)(1). Relying on United States v. Lopez, 115 S.Ct. 1624 (1995), Bobo argues that Congress lacks authority to make a felon's possession of a weapon a federal crime. Bobo's argument, however, is foreclosed by our recent holding in United States v. Rankin, 64 F.3d 338, 339 (8th Cir.1995) (per curiam) (rejecting Lopez challenge and holding Sec. 922(g) is clearly tied to interstate commerce).


Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed.

The Honorable Charles A. Shaw, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri
