Misleading headline. He was sentenced for far more than possession of a firearm: shooting at LEOs, armed robbery, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment, etc.
No, he was sentenced to 40 years in state court for armed robbery and attempted murder.
The 10 years in federal prison for possession of the firearm will be served after the 40-year sentence. They hope to “send a message that this type of crime will not be tolerated.”
