head over to a police station and ask them about ordinances concerning airguns. if it's legal to fire an airgun, you're in the clear. otherwise, don't shoot your gun outside.


also, restating your post in something a little closer to conventional english would be helpful.

It is a ***** law. Basically if you are not on a licensed, opperating pb field, you are breaking the law. I think the cop was just being an azz.

I googled the law that lunchbox posted and came up with this:
http://www.chicityclerk.com/legislat...r8_24.html#040

That is for Chicago. So does that mean it is illegal to fire a paintball gun or air rifle in Chicago?

Try googling or go to your cities administrative building and asking for the ordinances, then post them here. I'm not sure what you expect other people to do for you if you don't want to do your homework. Blabbering about things being unconstitutional is ridiculous. And BTW, cops aren't lawyers or lawmakers. They know the law to a certain extent, but they are by no means the right place to get that information.

Did you ask the owner of this particular piece of property for permission? If he knows what you and your friends are using it for then it shouldn't be illegal. Then again I don't know your specific town's laws.

Look it up.

There is no state law. The question is if there is a county or city law.

Best, go back and ask for a copy of the law. They should have to give it to you. And the person that works the front desk isn't the authority on the law either. If it isn't true, then show the copy of the law to any cop that comes by to hassle you. He may not actually know.

HB1503 - 4 - LRB095 10149 RLC 30363 b



1 person under 13 years of age carries such paintball gun rifle
2 unloaded.
3 It is unlawful for any person to discharge any paintball
4 gun air rifle from or across any street, sidewalk, road,
5 highway or public land or any public place except on a safely
6 constructed target range.
7 (Source: Laws 1965, p. 2977.)

This is a State Law. Thats why I said on a field only. It depends on the cops and if they want to mess with you. Most will not unless you are doing something stupid.
