Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 124 F.3d 208 (8th Cir. 1997) Aug. 26, 1997. Submitted Aug. 20, 1997. Filed Aug. 26, 1997. Appeal from the United States DistrictCourt for the Eastern District of Missouri

Before WOLLMAN, LOKEN, and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.


In this 28 U.S.C. § 2255 proceeding, Dominic Blackshiers appeals the district court's1  application of a firearm enhancement to his drug sentence, see U.S. Sentencing Guidelines Manual § 2D1.1(b) (1) (1995), after it vacated Blackshiers's 18 U.S.C. § 924(c) (1) conviction under Bailey v. United States, 116 S. Ct. 501 (1995). After a careful review of the record and the parties' submissions, we reject Blackshiers's arguments. See Gardiner v. United States, 114 F.3d 734, 735-37 (8th Cir. 1997); United States v. Harrison, 113 F.3d 135, 137-38 (8th Cir. 1997).

Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court.


The Honorable Jean C. Hamilton, Chief Judge, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri
