A 25-year-old Berlin man has been charged with shooting another man in the stomach with an arrow, killing him on Monday night, according to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.

Timothy Canfield, of the first block of North Brill Avenue in Berlin, is charged with the murder of Kereti Paulsen, of Cape May Court House.

Authorities allege that the victim, Paulsen, got into a fistfight with another resident of the Brill Avenue home some time between 10 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. Monday night.

That argument broke up and everyone but Paulsen went back into the house, according to witness statements provided to police. After the fight ended Canfield, who was not involved in the altercation, went outside carrying a compound bow and a quiver of arrows, authorities said.

The second amendment protects ARMS, not just firearms. That includes every terrible instrument of war, including bows, cannon and swords. No /s

I would opt to get shot with a gun than shot with a modern arrow head.

A 10-arrow limit would have made a difference ... oh wait.

Tragic, nonetheless.

Did he use a high-capacity quiver?

A Berlin man? What right does he have to be here? Hopefully he will be deported.

Thank you, I learned something today. :)

In "District of Columbia v. Heller," the Supreme Court stated that the definition of "arms" includes "weapons that were not specifically designed for military use and were not employed in a military capacity." Bow and arrows not only were "military grade" weapons at the time the Constitution was written, but fit the court's later, broad interpretation of weapons that are not specifically designed for military use.

The Supremes got that one wrong, and contradict themselves in regard to the US vs. Miller decision where they state "The double barrel 12-gauge Stevens shotgun having a barrel less than 18 inches in length, bearing identification number 76230" was never used in any militia organization.".

Wait... I may have read the Heller thing wrong. Is that military grade weapons AND non-military weapons are covered? or only non-military weapons are covered by the 2nd?

Well, if it is a unique identification number specific to a particular gun and one includes that aspect, maybe it wasn’t used in the militia.
