172080P.pdf     05/18/2018  United States  v.  Christopher McGee
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  17-2080
   U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa - Cedar Rapids   
   [PUBLISHED] [Loken, Author, with Wollman, Circuit Judge] 
  {Filed Pursuant to 8th Cir. R. 47E] Criminal case - Sentencing. The district 
   court did not err in imposing sentencing enhancements under Guidelines 
   Sec. 2K2.1(b)(1)(A) for three or more firearms; under Guidelines Sec. 
   3B1.4 for use of a child in the commission of the offense; and under 
   Guidelines Sec. 2K2.1(B)(6)(b) for committing the firearm offense in 
   connection with another felony; defendant waived any objection to the 
   continuance of his resentencing by not objecting to the ruling; even if 
   the issue was forfeited rather than waived, the continuance was not an 
   abuse of the court's discretion; no error in calculating defendant's base 
   offense level as his prior conviction for assault while displaying a 
   dangerous weapon in violation of Iowa Code Sections 708.1 and 708.2(3) was 
   a crime of violence resulting in a base offense level of 22 under 
   Guidelines Sec. 2K2.1(a)(3); even if the court erred in calculating 
   defendant's base offense level, the error was harmless in light of the 
   extensive sentencing record and the court's detailed sentencing statement 
   indicating it would have imposed the same sentence without the two-level 
   increase.
