    Man killed father in Wyoming bow-and-arrow attack - Yahoo! News

    Gist - a 25 year old man fatally stabs his fathers live in girlfriend, goes to the community college where his father works and attacks him with a bow, then fatally stabs both his father and himself. The father/victim is being heralded as a hero by giving his students time to flee by engaging the son/attacker. Police don't know why the son did what he did - I'll go out on a limb and say there's mental health issues and or drugs involved. Sad story all around.

    It's about time this issue came to light! I think it's time we really look at banning assault bows!:paranoid:

    Its the act not the method thats against the laws of man.

    it doesn't say You shall not pull the trigger or release the string. It says: “You shall not murder"

    Bingo. This tragedy, sadly, is a good example that a person bent on killing or causing harm does not need a gun to do his dirty work - they will use whatever implements they get their hands on - bows, knifes, clubs, sticks - whatever.

    Also - not to get too crazy and political, but had dad been legally armed, or had there been a legally armed student nearby - this mess might well have ended with one or two less dead bodies.
