Home COMMONWEALTH vs. ARTHUR SAMARAS.

10 Mass. App. Ct. 910

October 8, 1980

There was sufficient evidence for the trier of fact to find that the defendant had more than momentary possession of his gun and was "carrying" a firearm within the meaning of G. L. c. 269, Section 10(a), and that the violation, which occurred on the sidewalk in front of the defendant's house, took place in a location not within the exclusive control of the defendant. Commonwealth v. Seay, 376 Mass. 735 , 742-743 (1978). Commonwealth v. Dunphy, 377 Mass. 453 , 459-460 (1979).

The defendant's remaining contentions are either answered by Commonwealth v. Jones, 372 Mass. 403 (1977), or are without merit.

Judgment affirmed.
