      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 320 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 197, 35 Stat. 1126; Aug. 26, 1935, ch. 694, 49 Stat.

    punishment provisions of sections 2113(e) and 2114 of this title.
    These were left unchanged because of the controversial question
    involved. Such legislative attempts to control the discretion of
    the sentencing judge are contrary to the opinions of experienced
    criminologists and criminal law experts. They are calculated to
    work manifest injustice in many cases.
      Minor changes were made in phraseology.
      1996 - Pub. L. 104-294 amended Pub. L. 103-322, Sec. 320602. See

    604(b)(17), designated existing provisions as subsec. (a), inserted
    heading, substituted "A person who" for "Whoever", and added
    subsec. (b).

      1984 - Pub. L. 98-473, which directed insertion of "not more
