Started in a grocery store. No information whether it was a long bow, cross or hunting bow. He did have a high capacity quiver, one witness reported.

Norway has very strict gun regulations. Man arrested was not Norwegian.

Clearly we need some common sense bow and arrow control.

Sad and sick. The bow and arrow is a lot quieter than a silencer. One more example that mass murderers do not rely of firearms.

A cross bow would be pretty slow to reload. By hunting, I'm going to guess you are implying a compound bow. I would hypothesize a recurve or something along those lines, but then to me, it really doesn't make much of a difference.

Apparently a Muslim convert, though I doubt they'll call the attack what it is.

They are saying it was an act of terror. He was on a watch list of some kind. “May have been radicalized.”

I read this, and just shook my head. I made a sarcastic joke on social media with that very phrase, right after I saw the news story.
