Theft of Firearm

Theft of a Firearm in Washington is a Class B Felony, with relatively harsh punishment. For a person with no felony history, conviction still carries a standard range of 12 to 14 months. Additionally, each firearm that is stolen counts as a separate offense. A "firearm" is a "a weapon or device from which a projectile or projectiles may be fired by an explosive such as gunpowder."
Under RCW 9A.56.300, a person is guilty of this crime if “if he or she commits a theft of any firearm.” Value of the firearm is irrelevant.
For those legally unable to possess a firearm, Theft of a Firearm may also trigger prosecution for “Unlawful Possession of a Firearm."
