    Do I need to register my new bow?

  • #2
    I would not be surprised!

    “False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils, except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm those only who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicide, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. They ought to be designated as laws not preventive but fearful of crimes, produced by the tumultuous impression of a few isolated facts, and not by thoughtful consideration of the inconveniences and advantages of a universal decree.”
    -Ceasare Beccaria, 18th century criminologist, in On Crimes and Punishments

        I am unaware of any place where archery equipment other than crossbows is regulated. The only legal restrictions here in Massachusetts (with the rediculously stringent gun laws) is the minimum poundage required for deerhunting. I suspect even felons can engage in archery. The best thing about archery for those paranoid about government forced disarmament is that it is impossible to suppress archery because unlike firearms that are difficult to manufacture a bow is a stick and a string. Arrows are a bit tougher to get right, but they are also low tech and very do-able. An archer can always rearm themself with access to natural materials.

          No ...but after this incident in NY it wouldn't surprise me if some NY state legislator proposes that, along with microstamping all broadheads and field points.

            I don't know of a registration requirement for bows. I wouldn't be surprised at anything that comes down the pike these days. Probably will want to lazer etch unique serial numbers onto each shaft and broadhead eventually...

                Are you talking about registering it with the "authorities" or the manufacturer for warranty purposes?

                  Oops, if you do mean registering with the company I say, "Yes!" If there are any problems with the bow they can contact you directly and quickly. Sure beats having a bow limb break and ruin your day or your life. Bowtech recently had a recall on their General. I'd want to know about any problems pronto.
