Only if it actually was a live grenade. Every "grenade" story I've ever read that was followed up on turned out to be a de-milled "novelty" like you see at every gun show (at least around here) for $5. I've got one sitting in the gun room somewhere myself. In fact, one member here has an interesting story about one a coworker had in a federal office building, but I'll let him expound if he wants to.Wow.
That could have ended ugly.
Not quite. The same nomenclature is used in some other states (ex: California Penal Code 422), and was referred to as 'Terrorist Threats' until the immediate post Sept. 11th period. They're now referred to, much more appropriately, as 'Criminal Threats.' Seems like a minor change, but legislatively it serves to demarcate the criminal, or more localized actions from those that would be dealt with via the U.S. Code, like Title 18 matters.I think that's the catchall euphemism for "we don't like your attitude and you can't mouth off to us".
