Argued February 18, 2009

Before REID, BLACKBURNE-RIGSBY, and THOMPSON, Associate Judges.

As a result of his involvement in a violent attempt to rob a purported drug dealer, appellant Marvin Little was convicted by a jury of one count of armed robbery (“AR”), two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon (“ADW”), two counts of aggravated assault while armed (“AAWA”), three counts of possession of a firearm during a crime of violence (“PFCV”), one count of carrying a pistol without a license (“CPWL”), one count of possession of an unregistered firearm (“UF”), and one count of unlawful possession of ammunition (“UA”).*fn1 Appellant raises three issues on appeal. First, appellant claims that his CPWL, UF, and UA convictions should be reversed because the relevant statutes violate his Second Amendment rights. Second, appellant asserts that the trial court gave an erroneous aiding and abetting instruction to the jury. Third, appellant contends that the trial court erred in admitting a “certificate of no record” of firearms registration and a “certificate of no record” of a license to carry a pistol because their admission violated his rights under the Sixth Amendment Confrontation Clause. We affirm all of appellant’s convictions.
