What Is Considered To Be A Deadly Weapon In New Jersey?
To be charged with an assault involving a deadly weapon, it must fall under any range of objects that can inflict mortal or serious bodily harm to the victim. Usually, a deadly weapon can include:
- Projectile weaponry, including guns of any kind, bow and arrows, throwing weapons, darts, etc.
- Knives or blades of any kind including glass shards

The Definition Of A Terroristic Threat By New Jersey State Law
According to New Jersey law, a terroristic threat involves one individual threatening to kill another with the intent to terrify or cause imminent fear of death in the recipient of the threat. This usually involves circumstances in which the victim truly believes they are in serious and immediate danger. To get convicted of a crime of this nature, the prosecution has to be convinced that you had the intent and ability to carry out said threats and that the criminal actions you took were life-threatening.
