Good thing it wasn't a lethal weapon like a gun, though.

The bow and arrow doesn't really sound all that important to the story.  Here's a protip though: don't just unlock the door and turn around, even if you're an angsty teenager.

Did she at least bring some sloppy joes?

I'll bet the crazy lady needs a mental health evaluation more than she needs jail, but this happened in 'Murica, so she'll end up getting locked up.

I can understand it.  If she had outrageous fortunes, she could have had a sea of troubles.

I keep an unstrung recurve bow under my pillow. It takes a while to assemble but boy that robber will be pissed off if he's standing still from at most 25 yards away.

Arresting her can be a legitimate method of getting her into the health care system. The judge can suspend the sentence etc. so it doesn't impact her and it also leaves a flag so if she relapses down the road then a quick check on the computer will show that she's prone to this sort of thing.

That's how it should work and often does around here, your mileage may vary.

She would have been legally in the right to fire an arrow at her.

Lady's lucky, she almost took an arrow to the knee.

Slings and arrows and all that.

All I know is if I just unlocked the door and then went back to my room without a second glance, and it  had turned out to be my mom, I'd be calling 911 for entirely different reasons.

Your house is big enough that you have an unobstructed 25 yard shot?

At most, I can get about 15 yards, and that's from one corner of the basement to the other.

It is most certainly legal for the yeomanry of the countryside to equip themselves with longbows when the king calls upon them to defend the realm.

Pffft. If that's something that happens every day - maybe even several times a day - you can bet your ass that a teen is going to be lazy about it.

What's with the brat kid not opening the door for her mother?  Now everyone knows shes an ungrateful snot.

That's what teenaged girls do when they have to do something they don't want to do or had not planned to do.  They are "punishing" the parent by doing what they expect (unlock door) but then make sure the parent knows how much of a great inconvenience said parent created by not facing them.

I have two teen girls I'm raising by myself; they are more security conscious than most but they do have their teen girl moments.

well blame the ACLU for the couts case saying you cant lock craxy people up and blame republicans for saying, well if the courts say we dont hve to spend this money we should not then spend this money, lets instead build a stadium free for an NFL team.

You can't keep a bow drawn forever. Eventualy you either gotta ease up on your draw or let fly.

But with a shotgun, you could stand around all day with it braced on your hip.

You don't have to keep the bow drawn.

You can keep an arrow nocked, bow up, and ready to go until you are ready to shoot.  That's how I hunt deer.

Of course, you have to bring your arm back and then release, and that does take some small amount of time, but a surprisingly small one.  A second or less if you are in a hurry.

Yeah, but who is going to be intimidated by an undrawn bow? No one. I'd be all like "Yeah, so? Are you gonna stab me with it or something?"
Sure you can draw it in less than a second, and it becomes intimidating *then*, but time is on your side. If you don't become an active threat they are not *supposed* to fire at you, and the longer they go having to have it drawn, the greater the chances they will grow tired and have to put it down. And that's when you pounce like a jungle cat. *rwoar*

If I pull the bow back on you, I'm letting that arrow fly, and hopefully I've got another one nocked before you can do anything about it.
