SOURCE

    (Added Pub. L. 102-519, title I, Sec. 101(a), Oct. 25, 1992, 106
    Stat. 3384; amended Pub. L. 103-322, title VI, Sec. 60003(a)(14),
    Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 1970; Pub. L. 104-217, Sec. 2, Oct. 1,
    1996, 110 Stat. 3020.)

AMENDMENTS

      1996 - Par. (2). Pub. L. 104-217 inserted ", including any
    conduct that, if the conduct occurred in the special maritime and
    territorial jurisdiction of the United States, would violate
    section 2241 or 2242 of this title" after "section 1365 of this
    title".
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322, Sec. 60003(a)(14), which directed the
    amendment of section 2119(3) of title 18 by substituting ", with
    the intent to cause death or serious bodily harm" for ", possessing
    a firearm as defined in section 921 of this title,", was executed
    by making the substitution in introductory provisions rather than
    in par. (3), to reflect the probable intent of Congress.
      Par. (3). Pub. L. 103-322, Sec. 60003(a)(14), inserted before
    period at end ", or sentenced to death".

    prosecute persons who allegedly violate such law and other relevant
    Federal statutes."
