A weapon that is at least 9,000 years old, and was only "replaced" by the firearm in the last 500 or 600 years. Missouri boy cites self-defense after killing tractor theft suspect with bow & arrow
He was apparently trying to steal a lawn tractor and a log splitter.
A kid with a bow and arrow saw the thief and called his father. The father confronted the miscreant, but decided he didn't want to tangle with an adult, and ran toward the youth.
The attorney said the juvenile warned Stotts several times. When Stotts didn’t stop, the juvenile fired the arrow.
Self-defense is a human-right.
