11. How is this not a serious crime?

The CEO of a Tennessee company that specializes weapons and tactical training is threatening to “start killing people” if President Barack Obama moves forward with gun control measures
Raw Story (http://s.tt/1yf6S)


I just don't get it....It's been quite a few years ago.....A guy I worked with,had a younger brother,still in school and who rode a school bus.....Some sort of dust up on the bus,and the driver smacks little brother..... Co-worker meets bus the next morning,tells driver if he touches brother again,he will "kick drivers butt"....Co-worker is promptly arrested and charged with making "terroristic threats",a serious felony,which later was downgraded to some misdemeanor with a fine...

What I have trouble with is:If threatening to kick someones butt is a felony,how is threatening to kill people not?......
