Makes it a Level 5 felony for a person to provide an individual with a firearm if the person knows that the individual: (1) is legally ineligible to possess a firearm; or (2) intends to use the firearm to commit a crime; and increases the penalty to a Level 3 felony if the firearm is used to commit murder. Provides a defense for certain persons accused of providing firearms to ineligible individuals if: (1) the accused person contacted NICS to request a background check on the individual; and (2) the accused person received authorization from NICS to provide the firearm to the individual. Makes theft a Level 6 felony instead of a Class A misdemeanor if the property involved is a firearm. Allows the state to seek a sentencing enhancement of from five years to 20 years if a person uses a firearm to commit: (1) a felony against the person that results in death or serious bodily injury; (2) kidnapping; or (3) criminal confinement as a Level 2 or Level 3 felony.
