you would use spraypaint, but that has been banned too because it teaches people how to tag buildings.

Paintball IS dangerous... but nature is worse.

I was paintballing with a large group of people in the woods in an organized arena, and although I got shot all day with very little protection, I was just fine until I ran straight into a tree and blacked out. Busted my nose a little too.

Paintball is dangerous.

Writing with a pen can be dangerous.

LMAO- that reminds me of the Gary Larson comic with a deer that has a birthmark in the shape of a target on its stomach...and a fellow deer comes up and says: "Hell of a birthmark Hal."

Governments need to govern themselves first.....here in the US Baseball is being destroyed by those pinheads up the street who decided to go on witch hunts. Crips sakes these players can't even taking a freaking aspirin without a blood test. I'm mad because of what happened to Manny and the Dodgers yesterday! Sorry for the hyjack...

That a good one, Evan!

I heard the other day that someone jumped off a tall building and killed himself. I think tall buildings should be outlawed for that very reason, besides I don't own any myself . . .

Paintball is dangerous.
Running is dangerous and trees are dangerous.

If the paintballs are lead-based, I could sympathize with the concern...

How about just outlawing those semi-automatic paintball guns, or paintball assault rifles?

It's brings a tear to my eye when I see a African Elephant lying on the ground covered in several shades of latex enamel!!

What about dolls for little girls? Doesn't it teach them to be unwed mothers?
