If someone crazy holds someone to gun point for exactly $0.01, is this still a burglary?
I mean what is a penny? Suppose that’s all the ransom was for a penny
Would this meet the criteria for a burglary charge or not?

Pointing a gun at someone is called assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill or inflict serious injury. Burglary unlawful entry into a building or other property for the purposes of committing an offence regardless if anything is taken or not.
To answer your question, by definition pointing a gun at someone and demanding money is NOT burglary, it's armed robbery. Ransom? If you kidnap someone and demand $0.01 ransom, it's still kidnapping. What does $0.01 have to do with anything?
Yes $0.01 isn't much but value has nothing to do with right and wrong, taking $0.01 that isn't yours is still wrong.

You have no clue what burglary is.
noun: burglary; plural noun: burglaries
entry into a building illegally with intent to commit a crime, especially theft. "a two-year sentence for burglary"

That's not a burglary, that's armed robbery.

No, when someone holds a gun to someone and demands money, that is a "robbery", not a "burglary".

Armed robbery, not burglary.

It would be armed robbery, Lacretia!

Yes it would. Some guy robbed a bank asking for a dollar because he needed medical care.

It would meet the criteria for assault with a deadly weapon if not armed robbery
Burglary is breaking into a building, at night with the intention of committing a felony

I mean yeah probably because they're still doing a crime. If they were put away for a crime it would probably be burglary.
