Burglary With Explosives
I mentioned a while back my brief amusement at discovering that Idaho has a "burglary with explosives" crime. I assumed that this was some sort of Old West leftover. While researching the history of California gun control laws, I found that California's "burglary with explosives" statute was adopted in 1917. Perhaps there was an earlier one as well, although I would expect that to have shown up in the History section.
