Suspect reportedly aimed bow and arrow at police during standoff in Marietta

By Stephen Sorace
A carjacking suspect wielding a bow and arrow was in custody in Georgia on Tuesday after a standoff with police, authorities said.

Atlanta police were called to the scene of a carjacking just after 6 a.m. and found a female victim who reported that a Caucasian male took her 2014 Toyota Camry, the Atlanta Police Department said.

She said the man was armed with a bow and arrow when he approached her while she was inside her vehicle. He then fired an arrow into the windshield and demanded she exit the car, police said.

Police said investigating officers learned that a man matching the suspect’s description and armed with a similar weapon had unsuccessfully tried carjacking two motorists prior to taking the Toyota Camry.

The victim was not injured during the incident.

Thanks again to Gun Bunny for the links.

We’ll take one step at a time, and the first is necessarily – given the political realities – very modest. We’ll have to start working again to strengthen the law, and then again to strengthen the next law and again and again. Our ultimate goal, total control of handguns, is going to take time. The first problem is to slow down production and sales. Next is to get registration. The final problem is to make possession of all handguns and ammunition (with a few exceptions) totally illegal. — Pete Shields, founder of Handgun Control, Inc., New Yorker Magazine, June 26, 1976, pg. 53

Well… Bye.


Self inflicted?

May he enjoy his pineapple protruding from his posterior in perpetuity.

Thanks, Chiappa, but I’ll stick with my Ruger Mk IV 22/45 Lite…..a proven tack-driver.

We need common sense now and arrow legislation that would ban high capacity quivers. No one needs more than five arrows to take down an elk.

And a ban on Assault (compound) Bows!


If Hack Stone had the common sense to quit using that spell check software from a proud but humble woman owned company NOW, he may be able to put a nice BOW on the package of his comment.

These carjackers really need to find a new line of work.

Tease us with that picture, just to discover that the linky is about a POS that wouldn’t even make a decent paperweight. Bad Dog!


Actually the article suggests looking at the GSG .22, which is also a 1911 clone. It is sold as the SIG 1911-22, too (but cheaper when labelled as GSG.) Nice little plinker, dead reliable, and works like a real 1911. Usedta be under $250 on line.

WHAT IF IT was a “Ghost Bow” capable of launching 30-clip arrow magazines all at once?

With “the shoulder thing that goes up”.

I have the NSN on that “shoulder thing that goes up” in case anybody wants to order one and perform a field expedient MWO adapting it from the M-14 over to a Ghost Bow./s


You could use that M-14 butt plate for an entrenching tool.

Would the chainsaw bayonet attachment be a factory installed option or is it only available as an aftermarket add on?


And we need a ban on using natural feathers.
Remember the indian with a tear in his eye?
Or was that some other cause….


But humor aside, having hunted with a bow, I can confirm one doesn’t need even five arrows, as one rarely gets a second shot at a deer, elk, or other game. Your arrow misses and the animal is gone in a flash. Mostly, one needs extra arrows cuz you are bound to fail to find them once fired.

But those compound assault bows gotta go. I recall a certain Rambo movie where one was used as a feared “weapon of war.”

Hack Stone recalls qualifying on the Exploding Arrow Range back in the mid 1980’s. It was a hell of a time up on the firing line, but really sucked pulling the targets. Every time the arrow hit the target, the target would disintegrate.

There are certain types of modifications to Bows that make them more deadly. We need to limit the number of accessories that can be on a single bow that one can possess: Silences keep them completely quiet, clearly an assassins tool; peep sights or scopes should not be combined as they could allow them to fire “hundreds” of feet, far in excess of any requirement to hunt; Stabilizers need to be completely banned on anything outside of an Olympic competition, they allow the archer to consistently hit the same hole causing grievous wounds. Firing almost fully semi-automatic! Overdraws, can make a small bow impact like a bazooka and blow up entire convoys. We all saw what Rambo did with his, in …I think it was Rambo 14, right! The last I am going to point out is this on bow quiver, which can hold as many as ten arrows at one time. If you need that many arrows to take down a deer, you clearly aren’t planning to eat. No one needs a high capacity quiver!

Our founding fathers didn’t use compounds bows, sights, stabilizers, and over-draws! They used fingers and pins on a recurve. If they wanted us to have such technology they would have explicitly stated it in the Constitution! 😉

Looks like the car jacking arrow perp wasn’t straight arrow at all and walked anarrow path to crime.

Once again, we see the results of bringing an edged implement (expanding the definition of “knife’ to now include “arrows”) to a gun fight.


A small amount of additional Google-Fu on the bow and arrow carjacker reveals that after about an hour of looking for the perp, he crashed the Camry and then had a 20 minute standoff with the cops before he was shot, taken into custody and hauled off to the hospital.

The perp was identified as Trent Andrew Emory, age 29 of Canton, GA and he rings up a DAM/WRT score of 100 on the Whiz Wheel®™.


No Joy in attempts to slake the Whiz Wheel®™’s thirst by finding/scoring/posting the name of the Hollywood DOT carjacker in Memphis.


A wee bit of tangential feelgood news, S&W and Tennessee have announced that Smith & Wesson are relocating from hateful Massachusetts to thoughtful and lovely Blount County, Tennessee.

That brings the number of American firearms corporations that trade in American products up 20.


As for Pete Shields: “He’s dead, Jim!” Too bad we lost one of the great wannabe gun confiscators. If he had his way, my sport of Cowboy Action Shooting wouldn’t exist and essentially all ammo would be verboten, since there is a pistol to shoot most calibers/cartridges (except for the largest rifle cartridges).


If you include Contenders and Hand Cannon barrels, think most rifle calibers are covered. At least up to .45-70 which is also available in BFRs.


Yes, Thompson Arms has most rifle cartridges covered up to the very large game and human cal.’s like 338 lapua and .50 BMG.
