Pope Innocent II (pictured far left) – who ruled the Catholic Church from 1130 to 1143 – ordered that the crossbow should be banned in warfare against Christians. For non-Christians it was OK.

It’s not clear whether Sandra Marie Barndt, 71, was a Christian. In any case her daughter, Lisa Marie Caplan, 50, who resides in the US state of Pennsylvania, has been arrested for killing her mother with a crossbow, after an argument.
