Listen cheeky boy.  It ain't OK.  Feeling at tad annoyed here....   Would you like to compare homicide and suicide rates with Norway?   Or rates of death and murder of civilians by Norwegian police with US police?   Hmmm..... I think I see your point.   Guns make it all so much easier!  'Efficient'.  

Reading between the lines, the Norwegian police are taking this person very, very seriously.     Arrows can be fired in rapid succession by someone who has put in the time and effort to practice.

Remind me again, how many rounds a second can you fire with a bow?
 
it depends. 


or earlier models from the Ming Dynasty ...


and for conventional bows ...
Lars Andersen (born 8 November 1964) is a Danish painter and archer. Claiming to hold a world record for speed,[1] he is able to shoot 10 arrows in 4.9 seconds,[2] or 3 arrows in 0.6 seconds

Following the attacks, the police directorate said it had ordered officers nationwide to carry firearms. Norwegian police are normally unarmed but officers have access to guns and rifles when needed.

"This is an extra precaution. The police have no indication so far that there is a change in the national threat level," the directorate said in a statement.

To the Norskies out there.....  a term my brother and I used to use for Norwegians.   (Take Norsk, and add ies.) 

What is it like being touted as one of the most culturally advanced countries on the planet?   

What is it like living in a country that may have solved the Resource Curse better than any other country on the planet?  

Do you ever feel — collectively — that Norway has accomplished so much that it only has one direction to go and that is down?
