The Act expands the offense of aggravated assault by providing that an aggravated assault is committed when a person unlawfully discharges a firearm from within an automobile toward another person. The Act provides for additional sentencing with regard to the newly defined act of aggravated assault, which is punishable by imprisonment for five to twenty years.
