Why a crossbow, rather than a bow?

Takes up less space. To wield, that is, not to store; less unwieldy. Would that make it "more wieldy?"
Harder to cock. I can't imagine a 3-5 year old actually using the type I have in mind, whereas I wouldn't put it past Max using a recurve bow for fun when he's 4.
Better penetration at short range. Depending, of course.

The first point is the main one. I live in a small house, so the range benefits of a full-on bow don't really make any difference, and it's easier to turn corners and such with a crossbow.

And for the record, yes, I do know the necessity of securing ammunition in any case. One could argue that crossbow bolts, by themselves, are infinitely more dangerous than bullets.

lol, glad to see this topic is still generating comment.
Undoubtably, concerns posted here would draw the following response from our governor:

yippy kai yay! Very Happy

I didn't know whether to start a new topic or not, but one can see why some teachers would want to arm up if they had this kind of student (although, in this story, the student is public college level compared to public school level). The student, in turn, has filed suit against the school, saying the school has no reason to keep her from attending. When you read the boldface section of this story you'll have to wonder about her reasoning:

"FOX News San Antonio has learned that the Alamo Community College District has won a temporary restraining order against a SAC student because of threats against a teacher. Student Franchesca O'Neal says the speech instructor ridiculed her in class and gave her a grade of "B" when she deserved an "A."

In the order, the court says O'Neal is violent, unstable and has made terroristic threats. In her own court pleadings, O'Neal{i.e the student} says a ..quote.. "law abiding student with an extremely hard head is not immune to a psychotic break and subsequent killing spree under the right wrong conditions."

The ACCD is seeking a permanent injunction, preventing O'Neal from coming on campus or near the instructor, Charles Falcon
."

Weirdly, only our local FOX TV affiliate is carrying the story (and even this story takes some hunting to find it on their website).
The station has interviewed the girl on TV and she seems the scary type in that she speaks intensely with a tone of "I'M RiGHT! and everyone else better be wary".
Needless to say, the local community college students are jumpy she might show up one grey morning...
