    Crossbow Assault

    "Crossbow assault in Wairarapa"

    Police are investigating a serious assault which occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning (20 November) in south Wairarapa.

    At 3am, three men aged 18, 18 and 23 were confronted by a fourth man who fired a crossbow which struck the head of one of the group, after a confrontation at a remote address at Kahutara near Lake Ferry.

    The arrow from the crossbow penetrated the skull of a 23-year-old man who received immediate treatment for his injuries at Masterton Hospital.

    The victim is currently in Wellington Hospital ICU where his status remains serious but stable.

    Police have spoken to several witnesses and conducted a number of scene examinations.

    A crossbow was recovered during one of those searches.

    All four men were known to each other.

    The assault is not gang-related and Police are confident there is no ongoing risk to the public.

    A 21-year-old man has been arrested and is currently charged with assault while the full circumstances of the event are investigated.

    He was due to appear in the Masterton District Court today, Monday 21 November.

    Police are not seeking anyone else in relation to their investigation.

    I am very comfortable that we have spoken to all of the primary witnesses and that there is no risk to the public now or in the future from this group, says Detective Senior Sergeant Bysouth.

    The victim and his family have been referred to Victim Support.

    The danger to the public of assult crossbows is greatly underesitmated. Do you know that crossbows have been used throughout history to commit religious hate crimes and crimes against woman\minorities? As well as banning crossbows the gummberment should ban all materials that can be used to make crossbows and any 3d printer models for crossbow parts. These are known in the crossbow community as 80% crossbow lowers or ghost crossbows. A local gang pad has been raided and their stash of ghost crossbows has been confiscated (picture below).

    I got pinged for not declaring my compound bow as a weapon when I came thru customs at wellington airport a couple of years back. Just took a moment to explain that it wasn't a restricted weapon and that no license or permit was required to buy one or own one...

    Cross bows is one thing but what about all of the severely angry and all of the really fucked off bows in society?

    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    it's not the leaks that get me, its the lucas electrics that fail in the first big puddle and shut down your aiming system and the bolts that vibrate off causing you too loose your limbs after firing too many arrows!
