I think its because paintball guns have range & their just acting stupid about it

and yes a few do ruin it for all others sadly to admit

yes that is very true... i did a school essay on paintball arguing all these topics... why to people think its a violent sport when they dont know the first thing about it.

Paintball guns dont cause vandalism, vandals cause vandalism... it all depends on the vandals choice of destruction.

They can only ban the paintballing from town property only. It would take alot to ban it from the state.

Okay now I could be wrong but since when was court in session on saturdays?
Also since when did the courts make the laws? Wouldn't the "bill" have to be passed in your states legislative branch? So either you cant read or im just sound stupid.

Uhh mabye they should think about banning hands cause honestly a man on the street with fists is more dangorous than a marker........I'm 99.99% sure it wont get banned but, If it does you'll see a friggin uproar cause paintball in flordia is HUGE soo many people play (but then again all states really) I'm pretty sure the number of paintballers outnumber the *******s who want it to be banned I think they should go live in a ghetto neighborhood for a month or so I'll tell yah they don't know how good they have it........

I lived in Florida for 16 years. Moved to Hawaii for 5 years. Now I'm moving back to Florida in Dec. This had better not be true. I'm sure it's bulls#it. That is a VERY POOR reason to ban this sport.

The topic starter said ruling in June. So WTF? Anyone live in Florida been to a field lately?

WAY TO BUMP UP A THREAD YOU KNOW IS YEARS OLD!
And it's totally shens, there was no such article, there is no such ban, there isn't an ounce of truth to what was stated in this thread.

Firstly I'd make a new damn thread instead of keeping this one alive, and then I'd thank god they came through in the end.

They ought to ban toilet paper because you can't keep college students from papering the next frat house. Give the judge a corn cob and see what he says.

I realize that this is currently BS/shens/etc... But I do have to point out one thing. I'm a martial arts instructor. There is a select amount of items that I cannot get from some of my wholesalers in Cali due to bans of those items state wide. They can't get it in to distribute, I can't buy from them since it's controlled. It's not that far fetched that a state, such as Florida, can flex some muscle and ban markers state wide using that similar scenario.
