Guines Edict

Archery was a licensed technology that changed to be allowed   Under the Guines Edict, archery was deemed one of the least technological methods of hunting and warfare. While magic was preferred, archery was allowed. Initially, to avoid having too dangerous and armed a populace, the government attempted to require licenses for anyone wielding a bow. However, as the recognition that magic was more dangerous and easier to conceal, and to cut the costs required in licensing a majority of the rural (and difficult to reach and watch) populace, the licensing requirement was dropped several years after the Edict was given.
