North Carolina Criminal Law 14-72(b)(4): Felony Larceny of a Firearm
Under North Carolina criminal law 14-72(b)(4), the felony larceny of a firearm is a crime that involves stealing, taking, or carrying away a person’s firearm without their consent. You’d be charged with theft of a gun if you knew that you were not entitled to take the firearm, but still took it with the intent of permanently depriving the owner of the firearm possession. Like any other form of theft, the felony larceny of a firearm is a serious offense with harsh penalties. It will also label you as dishonest, making it difficult for you to get a job, keep a professional license, or even obtain loans.
