I'm not arguing against paintball or anything, but there would be no discrimination of paintball players because of this. It would just restrict you from playing it.

And they wouldn't have to ban any of those other sports because they're wholesome and traditional.

Well, yes exactly

People can beat the crap out of everything they want with baseball bats because everyone knows that baseball has nothing to do with beating people up.
Paintball on the other hand, has the problem of not being mainstream enough for everyone to know what it's all about. All they see is that you shoot people and to the uneducated onlooker seems pretty violent and dangerous.

Since they dont associate Baseball when a person beats someone with a bat. They shouldnt do it with paintball.

That's true, but they will.
Whining on a paintball forum won't help at all. Make a phone call and yell at a Florida Representative.
Knock yourself out

If this law/ruling/whatever it is passes, I suggest that every paintballer goes down to Florida to play/protest/pwn soccer moms, senators, and judges

It wont happen. Over a few late night paintball shootings, they cant. In Miami drive by's are done on a daily basis. In Riveria Beach, same thing, even in down town West Palm Beach.
