- If the firearm is discharged, the minimum prison term will be 20 years
- If someone is injured or killed by the firearm/weapon during the commission/attempted commission of the crime, the offender will face a minimum prison term of 25 years and maximum of life in prison
- A convicted felon who is found in possession of a firearm will face a minimum of three years in prison
- The minimum prison term will be served consecutively to any other imposed prison term
