Live By The Sword

The Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge approved a suspension of six months and fitness for the following

On November 13, 2013, [attorney] Jay made a threatening the phone call to an Arizona Charles Schwab office because he was locked out of his wife’s 401k account and wanted access.In the call, he made threats against the Denver Charles Schwab office, stating that if he did not gain access to his wife’s account innocent people at the Denver office would be “hurt” and the office would be “gone.” The Denver police dispatched two officers to Jay’s residence. Jay answered the door holding a two- foot long antique bayonet. The officers drew their firearms and asked Jay to drop the sword. Jay complied and was taken to jail. Jay’s lengthy struggle with depression, anxiety, and treatment for those conditions may have contributed to his misconduct.

How is this unlawful,being he is in his home? He did not "draw it." He was holding it.
