That letter is missing some key arguments.

- the law encompasses all paintball markers, even those that do not look like milsim replicas (it's not specific enough)

- the law hurts local business: many of the paintball/airsoft stores selling their products across the US are located in California. They would be forced to move their warehouses to other states.

- the law endangers police officers by providing a false sense of security - a criminal can paint real weapons to match the colors prescribed by the law in an effort to induce hesitation. Police Officers facing a reality of such weapons will stop associating colors with threat levels, resulting in increased endangerment of law abiding citizens.
