Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Legislation to toughen penalties against those who use illegal guns is headed to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

Under House Bill 1091, approved Tuesday by the House Judiciary Committee, illegal possession would be a felony of the third degree.

Anyone convicted would face a minimum sentence of at least two years in prison.

The bill now moves on to the whole House for a vote.
