Man gets 125-year sentence for theft of gun used to kill former Navy SEAL in Washington state

SPOKANE, Wash. — A man convicted of stealing a gun used in a murder was given 125 years in prison — about a century longer than the actual killers received after taking plea deals.
Christopher G. Nichols, 27, was sentenced Tuesday for gun theft, trafficking in stolen property, being a felon in possession of firearms and other crimes, The Spokesman-Review reported ( Stevens County gun thief slapped with 125-year sentence - Spokesman.com - Aug. 1, 2012 ) .
Prosecutor Tim Rasmussen said sentences for the gun crimes must be served one after another, as a result of Washington’s 1995 law known as Hard Time for Armed Crime.
Note: am assuming that Armed Crime means "Armed" not just firearm -- as that would demonize firearms.

I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

should have just given him the death penalty so we don't have to pay for his room and board.
oh, and life sentences too. life should no longer mean life as it were. kill em all i say.
