    Probably cleaning it and forgot to unload it. I always leave my crossbow loaded with extended magazines.

      And point them at myself when doing so.

    Nothing good ever happens on Lady Baltimore Ave after 10PM.

      Good to know. I always stayed away from there after 2300. I’ll adjust my timing.

    Can we please pass some common sense legislation that protects all Marylanders from these senseless, wanton cross bow accidents.

    In all of my years on this earth I’ve never accidentally shot myself with my catapult.

    When possession of a crossbow is a crime only a criminal will own a crossbow.
