Well, I cannot speak for NY, but in AZ, I can.
Here, all crossbows, no matter the size or poundage, even the toy
pistol styles, are classified as firearms. As are any handbows with a
draw weight of 40 lbs or greater. There are special rules allowing
thier use in cities, etcetera, but they are still considered firearms.
Technicaly, a person is not allowed to fire any Bow or Crossbow, no
matter the draw weight, at another person. Fortunatley, The state and
local authorities are aware of organizations like us and make
allowances. This includes paintball guns, as they deliver enough
energy to be classified as firearms within the state of Arizona.
So, by the grace of our State, we are still allowed to have CA.--- In
