All I was clarifying is that is isn't and never could be a firearm. I just wanted to clarify that. So... firearm statutes would still never apply to them, pure and simple. I understand what a lookalike is but that isn't the same thing now is it. And just because you are a cop doesn't make you a legal expert. The laws governing what is and is not a firearm are regulated by the ATF, not local laws. However I totally agree that using a paintball gun in a matter consistent with making its use appear to be that of a firearm is reprehensible. Use common sense people I mean come on. LE officers should take all precautions because they really never know. I think you took my posts in the context of what some other people were saying, even though I was only responding to one user's comment. I'm assuming you did this since you quoted my post..

berserker19, I never aimed at you personally.

But there are too many that use the "its not a firearm" argument to justify some really stupid things (like fireing from a car). I just quoted you to show that the act that started this thread has nothing to do weither the ATF considers a paintball gun a firearm.

I was trying to point out it could be considered a firearm in the way it was used in charging with a crime and sentencing thereof.

I see too many posts here from people that if young guns followed the misunderstanding (to put it mildly) of the law, they will end up in jail. Even if they were just being inocent idiots.

Sorry if there was a misunderstanding.

While the ATF may not define a paintball marker as a firearm, the federal government has allowed local municipalities to define and enforce what they consider firearms or not. The only stipulation is that any state or local law can not be applied to any standard that is less then what the federal standard is.

So... while it is true the ATF does not consider a paintball marker a 'firearm' doesn't mean that your local common council or whatever agrees.

Legally it's possible, but I still doubt local laws anywhere would ever classify a paintball gun as a firearm. I think some states have tried stuff like wanting paintballers to have firearm owners id's or hunting licenses but I think these laws are quickly written and usually fail.

How old are you?

That has to be one of the dumbest ****ing things I have read on this site...and there us a LOT of dumb **** said here.

As a Biology student, hunter, and outdoorsman, the only reason to shoot an animal is to kill and eat it, or to cull a diseased animal from the population. A paintball shot into the eye will most likely cause a painful infection that will slowly spread through the blood and into the brain. It would be slow, and miserably painful.

Not saying that you would intentionally do that, but we all know how innaccurate paintball guns are. If you get a dimple, or a velocity spike, or a little bubble, whatever, the *** to the eye is only a few feet.

Get an airhorn. install an aftermarket one on your car, or buy a cheap boat horn. They have tons of uses.

Besides, shooting the deer would scare it. Once they cross the road, they are going somewhere, they don't just wander, they hate roads and people too.(unless they are around idiots that feed them) If you spook them, they usually freak out and might run any way imaginable. They usually run ahead, and then circle around somewhat, depending on the topography. Best to just let them go. Or buy a compound bow and a cookbook.

muzzle loaders ftw.
also if you shoot a deer and it don't die withing a half hour (or so) it will most likely live. thats why we use scopes/sights to make sure it's a good clean kill.

There's no way that is actually a federal law. It's probably just against the field rules.

Why is this retarded *** thread still open? I see a LOT more viable threads get locked on this board before they even get reply #1. The dumbing down this thread has brought to PBN has gone on for 6 months now.

I'm sorry, I read your waiver but there is no way that is true. There may be local ordinances against firing a marker outside the park, but there are no federal laws pertaining to that.

If you don't like a thread then just GTFO. There have been some legitimate legal concerns raised here.

No there hasn't. Anyone who has come to this thread for legitimate legal advice must have the IQ of a ****ing handball.

Who do you think you are, the jesus christ of pbn posters? If you think a thread is stupid then just GTFO and go somewhere else. It's a public forum not a damn attorney's office. People can say whatever the hell they want you freakin' nazi.

Keep spreading stupidity. You should be proud you're contributing to the dumbing down of America.
