The whole point of this was to show proof of the idiots that are out there with paintball guns. Yes a paintball gun is a weapon, just ask the 4 boys in Colorado who did a little Federal Prison time for assult with a deadly weapon.
Trust me I've been playing long enough to see lenses shattered by paintball, just ask Zleader about their recall. They are the guys who make the lenses for the NFL as well as for a few paintball companies.
Yes back in the day paintballs did freeze. They do now but the shells get brittle, but remember Murphys Law "What can Happen Will Happen".
Tell the local kid here to take a sec. Pointed a milsim tippy at the cops. After he took six rounds, he thought about it. Same with my friends kid who shot out his eye 3 yrs ago.
However let's get back to my originol posting. I said "DON'T READ BETWEEN THE LINES" This man did not know alot about paintball at the time his Daughter was shot. Since those yrs he has heard form people like me who have helped him out. He doesn't want to close down paintball nor see a ban on it. It was just a message he was sending out to all on the DANGERS of what can happen when the PAINTBALL GUN is in the wrong hands. See when people post this kind of stuff there is always someone who reads between the lines and tries to find the bad in it. But look on YOU TUBE and there are idiots and many here probably know them that are being filmed taking 3000 shots on full auto or taking a shot straight to the head as a team initiation.
To me that's a real DUMB ***. It's people like that you hope a draft starts up and it thins out the Gene pool a little. Is there really a justifiable reason for doing it?
What gives Paintball a bad name? Some ******* shooting a kid from a car or some ******* taking 3000 rounds to bare skin? Hmmm seems to me like both of them would.
Like I said don't read between the lines, you have to understand that this individual wrote this quite a few yrs ago. What you really have to ask yourself is this:
If you knew your freind did this, could you reach down grab a set and let the police know? Or would you be a follower and say "Oh well it was a sweet shot she's alive".
Understand that I am not trying to flame here at all. I posted this for all to read and see what idiots do. Who knows where the gun was bought from:
Doesn't matter it's people like this that ruin it for everyone.
