I disagree. What is the goal of the video? It is to convert parents that dont want their kids to play paintball.
The number 1 reason a parent will not let their kids play paintball is that they are shooting people with guns. AND! the parent hates guns.
This video is stickied on forums in the UK, Australia, Canada, Europe and New Zealand. In all of these countries there are relatively extremely strict gun control laws. As such paintball is consider equal to that of guns. And parents will not let the kids play.
clearly state that the point of me making that comments is to say that its not a matter of where you sit on guns. Its own sport.
I am also very aware that in the US for some - because of the polarizations of the political debate in the US - this is also very true. I have heard directly from these parents in the US who have a similar opinion and where happy that I pointed out the fact that where you are in the gun debate doesnt affect if you should play paintball.
This video is over 6 months and I have heard from lots of parents and children that I have converted them to let the kids play paintball.
So I have achieved my goals.
The great thing about paintball is it brings together people who have different views. I am comfortable with that .
