#1 Good, stone "Throwing" is actually a sling, and deadly.

Goliath found out about that, the hard way.

#3 Time they had a "national conversation" on stone ownership...
Nobody needs to own a stone big enough to cause a skull fracture...
Nobody needs an "assault stone" to go deer hunting...

#5 Many women actually attend training camps where they are taught to kill soldiers. One of their favorite weapons is a folding wrist rocket type slingshot which they can easily hide beneath their clothing. A group of women will approach their intended victom. When close enough the woman with the slingshot will fire a sharp pointed projectile laced with home-made poison. The women then scatter and hide. One of the women will drop the slingshot in a pre-arranged spot where it will be picked up by a group of children who also scatter and are too fast for the soldiers to catch.
Since the poison is home-made, it is impossible for the soldiers or police to carry an antidote. One of the more common poisons is some concoction of animal urin and snake venom. Most victoms survive but many spend months in the hospital. More recently soldiers have been claiming that they have contracted HIV and other terminal illnesses as a result of being struck by one of these projectiles.
It is not just young people, but even grandmothers have been arrested for engaging in this type of attack, in both Kashmire and the Gaza Strip.
