Question

1. Muscarello illegally sold marijuana, which he transported in a small truck. Police discovered a handgun in the locked glove compartment of the truck. A provision in the firearms chapter of the federal law demands a five-year required prison term for persons who use or carry a firearm during or related to trafficking in drugs. Muscarello claimed that since the gun was in the locked glove compartment of the truck it did not fall within the description of the word “ carry” as used in the statute and that he was not subject to the required five-year prison term. Did Muscarello violate the firearms chapter of the criminal code?
2. Without first obtaining the required marriage license, Evelyn and Joseph Carabetta were married in a religious ceremony. Thereafter, they lived together as husband and wife. They raised four children, all of whose birth certificates listed Joseph Carabetta as their father. At no time did either party ever deny that they were married. In an action to dissolve the marriage, Evelyn Carabetta claimed that the lack of a marriage license made the marriage void. Does the lack of a marriage license make the marriage void?
