If possible, someone please dig up Facefull's quasi-recent article on Japan's paintball scene. It was pretty awesome.
Now, knowing what you know about world history, take a moment to let the words "Japan's paintball scene" sink in.
The short version is that at some point prior to the mid 20th century, Japan started acting like free-wheeling lunatics
so we had to nuke them. Now to this day they can never have an invading army and as such, they have the most ludicrous gun laws on the face of the earth
, something their citizens have absolutely ZERO say in.
You know what? Their paintball community is doing just fine. A little strange (below 150 fps by law) but fine nonetheless. Thats more than i can say for the paintball-apocalypse the OP is predicting.
We are a democracy filled with people who love both guns and paintball, usually in that order depending on what part of town you're from. It doesn't matter what people in congress or Obama or lobbyists or anyone else could ever want for paintball, they 100% CANNOT BAN IT. this gun bs does not touch us. The idiots shooting stop signs for kicks are NOT the crazy nutjobs shooting up kids. They're just idiots. we all know this. seriously, quit this nonsense because it doesn't affect us. that's not being ignorant, its 100% true.
