|(no avatar)||OK, I found it. In the crime bill: SEC. 110515. THEFT OF FIREARMS OR EXPLOSIVES FROM LICENSEE. A person who conspires to commit an offense under subsection (c) shall be imprisoned for not more than 20 years, fined under this title, or both; I think it shoud be life.|

|In Virginia, theft of a firearm from a licensee is a state level felony as well. It carries, I think, a 5-year mandatory minimum sentence. The state and federal authorities have cooperated fully in what they call "Operation Exile," and it has been a great success. Unfortunately, many states are reluctant to implement a similar cooperation; mainly because they want to pretend that it's guns that cause crime, not people. Virginia's experience is that a small proportion of the population commits most of the crimes; and that locking them up reduces crime rates out of all proportion to the number of offenders taken off the street.
Since the implementation of "no more parole" sentencing and Operation Exile, the crime rate in this state has dropped precipitously; since the passage of the "must issue" carry law, whereby anyone with a clean record MUST be issued a concealed carry permit, the murder rate has fallen even faster.
You would think that this would be a lesson to, say, the District of Columbia a few hundred yards across the Potomac; but they continue to insist that their total ban on firearms ownership and the use of deadly force in self-defense is "necessary" and that allowing people to exercise their rights is "too dangerous to allow." That's why DC is the Nation's Murder Capital.
