This bill modifies criminal penalties for an offense involving the theft of a firearm from a licensed importer, manufacturer, or dealer, or from their business premises.
Specifically, the bill does the following:
- increases from 10 to 20 years the maximum prison term, and
- creates a 3- or 5-year mandatory minimum prison term for an offense that occurs during the commission of a burglary or robbery.
An attempt to commit an offense is subject to the same penalties as a substantive offense.
