Guns down, Paintballs up

Have you seen this sh*t?
Apparently some gangs have taken the game out of legit fields and onto the streets.

'Guns down, paintballs up': the US trend for settling feuds with paintball wars

I cannot see any good for the game coming out of this.

It's not going to affect "the game". It's just hoodlums being hoodlums.

This is a marketing opportunity for smart field owners.

It's how politicians get ideas planted in their heads and then suddenly paintball guns are "weapons" that need lots of new "laws" and "regulation"

Someone needs to get that 21 Savage guy to a proper field and make sure he has a good time, so he can get all his fans off the street and onto the field.

I think at this point, between airsoft and the violence in TV, movies and video games...paintball isn't going anywhere. Times have changed.

I think this is an anti-gun violence protest, in a way. Yeah, it's definitely illegal. A kid has already been sentenced with a $30,000 bail. Clearly there are laws already enforceable.

Outside of that, it's better than gangs using bullets. Not perfect, but better.

Plus, all legal ramifications aside, who wouldn't want to take to the street in a massive game of paintball? Totally illegal, but totally fun too.

I really hope a paintball spokes person jumps on this opportunity to show how to have proper/legal/safe fun with paintball. Clearly there is a budding market for it.
