section naming?

i could be wrong but im pretty sure that this is named wrong, they dont want to ban paintball guns, they just want to change the color.

It certainly does get people to look... but the same people may call their representatives trying to figure why the're banning pb guns. Which the're not.

We're not sure most legislators want to do anything to paintball guns at all - it just happens that the way the bill is written, paintball guns are getting lumped in with replica airsoft guns.

But, the current bill would absolutely ban many paintball guns. Yes, if your gun is entirely brightly colors that would be OK, but I personally can not think of a single paintball gun in existence right now that would be legal under the new bill.

Plus, most guns need an air tank to work. How many bright pink air tanks have you seen? Does an air tank count as part of the gun that must be brightly colored? The law doesn't say - and it's not something you really want to find out about in court.

Please understand that yes, there will always be what if or exceptions to the rules but as the bill is currently written, a majority of paintball markers will be affected and this will put the manufacturers and retailers out of business. It might not affect paintballers in other states soon but in the near future, your choices will be limited and your state might try to pass similar legislation.

Yes you can always wrap your paintball markers or buy new tanks but do you want to suffer that expense?
