Of course they are deadly, if you get hit in the eyes, ears, face, temple at 300+ fps then it could be fatal. As for 20 years.. thats a little steep. They certinly should get some time, but 20 years is an awful lot, stuff like this gives paintball a horrible name in the media.

Baseball bats and golf clubs are considered deadly weapons when misused, why wouldn't a paintball gun be considered deadly if it's misused? The difference is public perception, but regardless if someone misuses a paintball gun (shooting marbles etc) to injure others they should be prosecuted accordingly IMO.

I am not sure at all if this has legal backing but i was told that if you shoot somone above the waste is is assult with a deadly weapon or even attempted murder, but if it is below the waste it is smaller charges

If, it is not used for the purpose it was made for, then yes it can be a deadly weapon if not used right.

Have you ever spent time in prison? Im guessing not, because after doing time, you wish upon no one prison time.

I think there should be a law to only sell paintball guns to kids that actually take the sport seriously and won't go out and be dickholes with them, giving this sport a bad name screwing over all of us trying to show the world that paintball isn't a joke. Really the only type of media attention paintball gets is from ****heads. But i guess any media is good media...

People who go around in cars doing stupid stuff like that deserve everything they get.

Some nubs shot a spyder or something out their car one day. Too bad for them I was sitting on the couch close to the door cleaning my bolt. Sure enough I went out and lit their car up. Kids deserved it.

theoretically it's a deadly weapon. probably not but crank the PSI and start shooting reballs, see if i jump in the way.

Really anything is a deadly weapon, if a bag of ice subes could be a deadly weapon why not a paintball marker?

paint ball guns deadly to a pen would be more deadly. you can shoot out an eye, point blank with monster balls and your gun at 350 fps yes it could be deadly if key points hit but it would only fire a couple times then brake down and if you were stupid enough to try it you wouldn't be smart enough to tune the velocity or get balls that would be dangerous

they can be a deadly weapon if you get hit in the temple or in a few pressure points, but i dont think they should get 20 years for it.

i also heard a story a few months ago that i little 7 year old i think, had a paintball gun, put a little screw driver in it, and shot himself in the eye. its really tragic, but i think thats common sence not to but little sharp things in something that shoots tiny balls at 280 fps

that's the way to handle it- agreed, people who do stupid things that endanger others get what they deserve i just hope they remember to tattoo their name on the back of their necks before they to to prison so they are easier to identify
