Is a Catapult Classed as an Offensive weapon!?
Yes. Three categories of offencive weapon
made, manufactured to be a weapon, guns, knives, catapults, cross bows etc
adapted, changing a harmless object into a weapon, broken bottle sharpened stick etc
intended, usually in offencive object used as a weapon baseball bat, golf club etc
as its not a defensive one i guess it would be an offensive one
Yes it is, because it can cause injury.
Certainly it can be classed as an offensive weapon
As Allen55 defines it, the crux on this 'is Intended' the onus is upon the police to prove that the catapult was intended to cause harm, for instance if your a fisher man you may legitimately have a catapult to cast bait but if your just wandering the streets then its somewhat more difficult to justify your possession of it.
However the Police must prove that it was intend to cause harm.
Anything can be classed as an offensive weapon. In my main job as a Security Officer at an English Criminal Court, I confiscate screwdrivers, nails, 1 inch knives, metal combs, corkscrews etc etc.
I oned confiscated a condom, on the grounds that it could be pulled over the head of the Judge and used to suffocate him!
It is a strange law, as I often walk the streets of my town with a case containing a meat cleaver, and 8, razor sharp, knives. These are not classed as offensive weapons, because my other job is working as a chef, so they are tools of the trade.
I think so
