Crossbows Banned !!!

In the 12TH Century a crossbow was considered "A Weapon of Mass destruction" "The Great Equalizer" No One neither a king in a full suit of armor was safe from a lowly scum bag peasant with a simple squeeze of a trigger !!

As a result it Was Banned by the Roman Catholic Church. Pope Urban II banned the use of Crossbows in 1096 !! Then upheld by Pope Innocent in 1139 !!
Solders for Hire smoked Emperor Fredrick II at the Battle of Pama in 1248 !! In fact the Holy Roman Emperor was so incensed by the reversal he ordered his men to CUT OFF the fingers of all Crossbowmen Captured !!!!!!!!

The time will be: 2017 !!! Will Hillary Ban the Crossbow once and for all Forever ????

Re: Crossbows Banned !!!

Only proves how deadly they really are. Tremendously more deadly than any other type of bow.

Actually, the attempt was to condemn archery -- crossbows and longbows both -- and it was against its use in battle (i.e., against Christians).

Re: Crossbows Banned !!!

By the I brought my crossbow I already did plenty to send me to the fires below, no worries here

My ability to remember lyrics from songs of the 60's far exceed my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen

Did they experience "crossbow regret"?

No, but all the long bow guys complained about how easy it was to kill those guys and that there were hardly any left for the catapult season guys to kill.

Yeah, I heard that.

I am all for killing Emperors with any legal weapon, as long as it is done via fair chase, and not in some high fence establishment.

Agreed, but this trend of posting severed heads on pikes in the town square has to stop... brings unwanted negative attention to our fine sport.

And don't even get me started on the Trojan Horse issue.
