Time To Ban Crossbows?

January 17, 2016 Local News

Two juvenile suspects have been jailed in connection with an early Sunday morning armed robbery of the Casey’s General Store in Grayville, Ill. One of the suspects was armed with a compound hunting bow, police said. Investigators said the suspects got less than $200 in the heist and fled on foot. As Grayville police were investigating the incident, Mount Carmel, Ill. police reported stopping a vehicle that contained two individuals matching the description of those involved in the robbery. A compound bow was found in the back seat of the vehicle. Edwards County State’s Attorney Michael Valentine says both suspects are 17-years-old and have been lodged in the juvenile detention center in Benton, Ill. Formal charges in the case are expected to be filed on Tuesday. Both will make their first appearance in Edwards County Circuit Court in Albion on Tuesday.

Sounds like it was a compound bow and not even a cross bow. Might be time to ban all things pointy or at least require training and permits. Maybe a single permit with endorsements for knives, bows, #2 pencils...
