Newlywed needs to be poked with something else, not an arrow.
It must be horribly painful.
Hang that guy.

There is no guide book for the insane. Part of insanity is the urge to display how crazy they're feeling. We all feel the need to show what's bothering us, but our bothers come and go. Theirs take over their entire lives and stick around all day, every day.

So they look to what's happening in society for their cues as how to act. And act out, when they are angry and/or confused.

Whatever is causing the greatest commotion in the time is what they do. 90 years ago, sudden disappearance was the event that caused great commotion. When Judge Crater disappeared, it was headline news for months and then years afterward. During that time, mental patients disappeared by the thousands; most were found, some never found, but a lot of them claimed to be Judge Crater.
One of the missing was Agatha Christie, who had a mental break in the late 20s and disappeared for a couple of months. She was eventually found on a train in Europe somewhere, was institutionalized for a time, and then went back to writing mysteries again, as if it had never happened.

It's all a cry for attention. The insane are just imitating what's going on, and when violence takes over the news, that's what they imitate.

And that's why I believe in stronger background checks for any weaponry. Right now, a person who is forbidden to own a gun can still purchase a crossbow with no trouble at all, or high-powered bow, or any device capable of killing another person as effectively as a bullet.

Background checks wont stop the disturbed from killing of course; there will always be kitchen knives available, and any number of tools that can be lethal, and even if they are all restricted, the world will always be full of rocks, logs, and other natural stuff people use to kill others since time began.

Rational people tend to become de-sensitized to horror. The insane become over-sensitized. The only way to ever cut down the frequency of crazy mad dogs is for our society to change in a way that allows the mad dogs to find another way of displaying their madness that isn't so easy or convenient as a weapon that discharges a projectile.
