also, *only read first and half of last pg* but what about the NPPL tournies they hold there...?? how r they gonna do that?? will they ban that too? if they do, im sure the businesses wont like it... cuz im sure it helps them sumhow.....

also... i dont understand... they want to ban paintball.... cuz ppl shot car windows and houses... stuff like that... but they dont ban guns when gangstas kill ppl?? or when some1 robs a bank...?? i mean WTH....

and waht xtraboy said... if they do... tell them *the state of florida* that they will have to remburse(sp) u for ur paintball xpensises that u have at the time... guns/hoppers/tanks/paint/etc.

also... how many paintball shops r in florida?? that would put them all out of business also.... wouldnt the state have to reemburse(sp) them also???

very very doutful that it will happen if u look at everything that would have to happen if they did ban it.... how will they go about making sure ppl in florida dont have markers, what about the companies set up to sell paintball stuff.... etc.

aint gunna happen, they aint gunna ban baseball cuz somebody bashed a car window with a baseball bat, and they aint gunna ban golf cuz a golf ball hit somebody's wingshield, and the court woul most likely be overwhelmed by petitions and other protests if tehy tried, it just aint gunna happen, im in georgia so it doesn't affect me, but still a neighboring state, but if that happened, i would be VERY shocked

Edit: BTW, you can do a lot more damage with golf clubs and golf balls than baseball bats IMO, so if this happens, we're all headin to florida armed with golf clubs right, mwahahaha

Everyone that's posting these "well then they have to ban baseball" agruments is overlooking that baseball bats and golf clubs are meant for hitting baseballs and golf balls not people. Paintball guns are for shooting people.

Its not going to happen. I live in florida and have heard nothing even about it. Paintball is not going to be banned anywhere, but you guys do have to look at it form the outside world. Also, baseball isnt gonna get banned cuz people gettin the **** knocked out of them. There are millions of dollars in baseball its not going anywhere. Neither is paintball, theres also to much money in it. Guns arent going anywhere either. It would take to much time, money, and effort, by to many people to ban these major things in society. Not to mention it would violate the constitution. Well im out

just think of it like this, even if they did ban it, people would still have guns and paintballs and would still shoot them, maybe not at a course or tourney but there would still be numerous sightings of paintball guns. Its the same thing with spraypaint etc, even though its illegal people still use it and get away with it. So banning paintball(unless they ban like shipping to FL or something and police are allowed to invade the home) isn't really going to do much except clear out the courses etc, theres still going to be an existence of paintball markers throughout Florida.

we are saying that more in the sense of proper use, paintball guns are made for shooting people in a safe environment with goggles and other protctive equpiment, not shootin a person in a drive by shooting with no protetive padding

I know what you're saying, but you have to think about what the angry anti-paintball people are saying.

Wow. You are all getting worked up over a hypothetical situation. There is no eminent threat of paintball being banned statewide anywhere in the good old usa. So shuddup. Even if the quote from the judge was real it doesn't mean anything. It's his personal opinion. One judges opinion means as much as this board. And your conversations about baseball bats etc. It means d*ck. Don't work yourself into a heart attack because someone might take away your precious paintball. If they didn't ban GTA they won't ban paintball. Although they probably have (or will) make it illegal to fire a paintball marker within city limits exept in regulated fields. Which should be where you guys are playing anyway. Regulated fields. Or out of city limits. So cry over florida. Buy the lie because it's cheaper than movie tickets.
