Ah, the joys of public school.

When I used to teach middle school science (at a small private school) I used paintball guns and parts for demonstrations all the time. The fact that the air valves and electronics are so simple and exposed made them ideal for teaching about solenoids, air pressure, etc.
Can't recall a student ever bringing their own gun to school, though.

Moral of the story: Don't bring paintball guns or gun parts to school. I thought that was kinda common sense.

In my school we were able to bring our markers to school as long as no barrel or tank was attached and no ammo was brought as well.

It's not that unbelievable. I dressed in my full attire (jersey, pants, pack, etc) and walked through campus to my speech class to give a demo speech on paintball. I brought my gun as well, but without the tank and hopper. My teacher said it was fine.

Getting expelled/suspended for bringing in your paintballgun/parts into school, is as stupid as you for bringing it into school. Everyone who does this, without getting clearance from a principle or dean, is absolutely retarded and should probably pay more attention to class than paintball. I remember every year of my schools orientation, and can clearly remember the expulsion rules if you brought in ANY KIND OF FIREARM.....for those of you who don't know what the correct meaning of firearm is, it is ANYTHING that fires a PROJECTILE...IE: Paintball=projectile, BB=projectile, Bullet=projectile. This really isn't that hard to figure out....

Same here at NCSU, the schools policy has to be no paintball "guns" on campus, but really, nobody cares as long as it is put away and disassembled to where jolly sue who's drunk cant get a hold of it and go on a shooting rampage. I can say if one of our club members gets in trouble for simply having the paintball marker put away and at least partially disassembled, we back them 100%. However, we basically disown anyone who is flashing their marker around and telling everyone about it.

Moral of the story, if your school (h.s. or college) has a paintball club, please dont be stupid. Promote it in a safe manner and keep all your gear put away and out of reach of anyone who might use it to harm and/or damage anything.

I was once suspended in elementary school because when we sat down on the floor, a nail clipper (one of the ones with a nail file that swivels out) fell out of my pocket and the teacher picked it up. Schools are absolutely retarded when it comes to their no tolerance rule. That being said, don't give them the opportunity to make an example out of you for bringing something to school that you shouldn't. There's no reason to bring a marker in, not even for "show and tell" or a presentation. Diagrams of how the marker works, or a video would suffice, as well as bringing in the things that you SHOULD make everyone aware of during the presentation like your mask or protective gear.

Im glad Im in collage. I had to give a demonstration speech on a topic of my choice and I choose how a paintball works. So I brought the whole gun in and nobody had a problem with it.
if they ever actually let you into 'collage' (he means college, bty) you must b one of the dumbest people there and have to have them make 'special arrangements' for a 'special boy' that you just proved on the internet, you are

you sir need to learn your facts before posting.
Firearm-Under 26 USCA 861 (a), firearms is defined as "a shot gun or rifle having a barrel of less than eighteen inches in length, or any other weapon, except a pistol or revolver, from which a shot is discharged by an explosive if such weapon is capable of being concealed on the person, or a machine gun, and includes a muffler or silencer for any firearm whether or not such firearm is included within the foregoing definition." United States v. Adams, 11 F. Supp. 216, 217 (S.D. Fla. 1935)
the key phrase is "from which a shot is discharged by an explosive"
(http://definitions.uslegal.com/f/firearms/)

if a firearm was in terms of your definition, a spitball would be a firearm because it projects wads of paper. a football launcher for a reciever or punt returner in football would also be a "firearm"in your definition because it launches a ball AKA the projectile.

A paintball marker is not a firearm because it doesn't rely on a combustion to propel the projectile;Nor is it a lethal weapon because it is not designed to kill.

"A deadly weapon is generally defined as a firearm or anything manifestly designed, made, or adapted for the purposes of inflicting death or serious physical injury. The term includes, but is not limited to, a pistol, rifle, or shotgun; or a switch-blade knife, gravity knife, stiletto, sword, or dagger; or any billy, black-jack, bludgeon, or metal knuckles."
(http://definitions.uslegal.com/d/deadly-weapon/)
The moral of hte story is people associate paintball with firearms and freak out because of it. Someone could probobly sue for being wrongfully expelled. A paintball marker is no more than a piece of sporting equipment that is in your car. The potential to cause a crime with it (AKA vandalism) does not make it illegal to have. If that were the case, then why are people allowed to have a can of spray paint in there car (for whatever reason[football hash marks, after school job, ect])and not be expelled? The only reason why one might be expelled is a violation of the Code of Conduct, which I am not familiar with enough to give a proper responce to that subject. The Code of Conduct varies county to county, and school to school. If you want to be %100 clear of if you can or can not legally have a paintball marker in your car, then i would read the code of conduct for yourself.

The term "firearm" is ubiquitous and has differing definitions according to multiple laws and dictionaries; by your definition, a bow could be considered a firearm.

I just think its stupid how you can get in trouble even for having a paintball marker on school grounds. For instance, there was a senior at my high school that got expelled because he had forgotten to take his paintball gear out of the backseat of his car from the weekend. Someone recognized a logo on the gearbag and told the dean.

Just don't bring anything to school that is a weapon. When I was a kid we all carried pocket knives but times have changed. If kids carry a sharpened pencil to school it is considered a weapon these days. Of course when I was a kid we didn't go around shooting each other over the last piece of fried chicken in the cafeteria either.


its the same reason you get expelled for having bullets but no gun, a flask with no alcohol, or a bong with no weed, or a dummy grenade.

this way there is NO chance of a dangerous situation developing where the school and the district is held liable
