the title says killed one... but texts says more than one. time to reign in the those bows and arrows. No description of the offending Bow or arrows. maybe a dreaded English longbow or one of those hideous American compounds, in assault black or commando camo. Can't imagine the bad press the arrows and broadheads will be in for. [pointy death sticks]

EUROPE Published 28 mins ago Norway police say man with bow and arrow killed 1, injured several An investigation is ongoing By Bradford Betz | Fox News

A man killed several people and injured others in the Norwegian town of Kongsberg Wednesday evening, according to local police and reports. The suspect has been arrested, police chief Oeyvind Aas told reporters.

An investigation is ongoing. Kongsberg is about 50 miles southwest of Oslo.

Newsweek's headline is one you'd never expect: "Unarmed Police Ordered To Carry Guns After Bow-and Arrow-Massacre in Norway"

"injured several"

Probably a compound shooter taking 60 yard shots.

You can get off a lot of shots quick with a longbow and a loaded backquiver. And nowadays everybody just stands around and videos everything that happens...like ducks in a row!

Guns are allowed in Norway and hunting is popular

Sadly, mot people don't carry their *hunting* guns around any more. Not sure what Norway's laws are re. concealed carry of handguns.

Personally I think society would be better off if we could again 'open carry' our long guns in the rear truck window.

A very puzzling line in a news article I just read: "The attacks didn't begin until police arrived on the scene." I sure hope that gets explained!

In answer to your question, Bou: Somewhere in the neighborhood of one.

Apparently this idiot was an Islam convert and on the terror watch list....according to the Breitbart story this morning

Next move will be California banning or at least registering all archery equipment.

Bad people will be bad people no matter the weapon of choice. I read and article the liberals won’t talk about where knives were used in China to kill a bunch of people

Saw a photo from the scene of the attack of an arrow sticking in a wall. No fletching, no nock. Must have been using FOBS.

I noticed the same thing, Olink. Another puzzler.

Maybe it broke.

The Rwanda massacre of 100s of thousands of people was largely carried out with machetes. It doesn't take a gun to kill a lot of people, it just makes it possible from farther away.

I cant get past the headline. No love for the bias media. Can you say ISLAM?

Reports that I have seen are saying it was a crossbow, but the police have not made a comment other than that "there are multiple crime scenes."

From: JohnMC

Ak crossbow guys are even more degenerates than the trad guys .;)

But never considered that since a crossbow not archery/bow and arrow.

From: Olink

In the picture of one of the arrows that this guy shot it is at least 30 inches long. Definitely not a crossbow.

Hmmm

Wonder if this website “BOWsite.com has moved to the terror watch list in Norway.

From: Woods Walker

It's time to end bow violence with "common sense" bow control laws. Bows were weapons of war for MANY centuries. At the minimum there should be laws that limit how many bows you can own and also put a limit on the number of arrows one can purchase at one time. Why does someone need more than one bow and 6 arrows for anyway? And for sure we should ban "assault style" bows. You know, the camouflaged ones that hold 6 arrows or more right on the limb! Their only purpose is to KILL!

(Did I cover all the liberal buzzwords?)

Almost. You need to throw in "If saves only one life, it's worth it".

Wow, people are dead due to some psycho and some want to make jokes. So the next time we hear of a family memeber of a bowsiter dies are we allowed to joke about it? Come on guys, A Little respect for the tradgic loss of life.

Theres various aspects and angles to most issues and events.

Political satire being one of many.

To limit oneself and others to only your one chosen one. Is denying yourself and others of the broader aspects of life.

That’s a ridiculous excuse for sensationalizing death to place attention on yourself. You’d give liberal media a run for their money.

As for the rest of you jokers, remember this and other similar threads if and when this site continues to dissolve into a shell of what it once was. I’m about done, not that I’ll be missed but I do miss what Bowsite was until lately.

But you have to admit what has been lost in educational value over the years has been made up for in sheer train wreck -like entertainment value. Like the old Gong Show.

In such horrible situation people might be shared between showing some empathy because the killing of innocent and the pain of the families who lost a son/daughter, a father/mother, brother/sister are now endless and nowadays every one of us could be in that kind of situation OR making ass hole’s joke on them because those euro dummies after all are not American right ? so who cares? FWIW I think trying to hide his own stupidity is always better than jumping on any situation to show it

Some years back, a dude ran a truck through a congested crowd, then jumped out with a samurai sword. If I remember correctly, it was in Japan and he killed 19 and injured a couple dozen more. Just shows terrorism can't be contained by gun laws.

i remember a guy did terrorism with a rental truck and fertilizer.

Turns out this guy killed most with a knife.

At Agincourt most of the French were killed with short knives and pole axes, not the long bow as some claim it was a longbow vs crossbow event. Yes, they were used but did not kill most of the enemy. These were two neighboring countries that fought for many years.

Norway the land of "don't draw any attention to yourself by being exceptional" is a socialist nation struggling with radical fundamentalists and others who have no sanctity for human life. Remember the guy who when to a retreat island and killed all the people there?

Whether its ANFO, airplanes, guns, bows or knives it all gets down to one premise-no respect for the sanctity of human life. Has been around as long as humans have been in existence even with our best efforts to control it. Pray for the families of the lost. Kick the media in the balls for sensationalizing it, and throttle the politicians for using it to further an agenda.

Mental illness and religious fundamentalism is the core of this and everyone should know that.
