What about the crossbow? The Pope banned it claiming it would be the end

Although I thought the English (and probably Japanese too?) Longbow could
already do that?
Have you ever tried to use a longbow?
Well, neither have I...but my understanding is that it's really hard
just to use it, and much harder to actually hit anything (much less a
knight on horseback who's trying to kill you).
A crossbow, on the other hand, is point-and-shoot. It may take ages to
reload, but it doesn't take either strength or skill, particularly.
Truly a tool for the masses.
