And the reason why such Crimes hasnt been posted in the Forum for long is because, its all Too Common and the End Result is usually the same, except when a Death is involved....like the one I posted in the Opsgear Forum back in 2005, when a Pro Shop somewhere in Central California was being Robbed at Gun Point and to make that story very short....the Robber was chased down by the Local PD, perp stopped somwhere....shots were exchanged that lead to the death of the Robber.

"We got 20 calls last night, so that means 20,000,000 people found this content offensive."-FFC from Family Guy
same thing applies to paintball
"We got 2 people that cased a crime, so that means 20,000 paintballers commited a crime."

If I am not mistaken you are right.
You are correct a paintball marker is veiwed as a weapon and the crime is treaeted as such i beleive that ever other state has this law I know Minnesota does. A few years back a young man killed his father and fired on police in Minneapolis with a Tippmann 98 filled with .68 marbels. If my memoery serves me the boy was arrested with out force and was charged as an adult which in Minnesota is a life sentance with no chance of release.

No murdering a police officer is always life/death. Some time attempted murder is life. Assaulting a police officer is a 1st degree assault a felony which can get up to 25 year or more. The amount of damage to the officer can lead to either an assault or an attempted murder or even both.

Here in Canada if you commit ANY crime using a paintball marker, guess what? Your marker gets bumped up to a firearm and you are charged with a felony, regardless of your age.
1st of all the are u kidding was directed at the 2 guys actions. Nothing in my post was funny or a laughing matter. I would think that every member of this forum would think that the actions of these 2 individuals was horrendous to say the least. Who are you to try to suggest that anyone leave a forum based on their personal opinion, regardless how ridiculous it may or may not be. Here in America we have freedom of speech. I've been playing paintball since 1995, I have taught my children, and numerous other to play the game, always safely. Puz i usually agree w/ most of your post, and take your opinion w/ high regard but you are way off base here. Don't let a post count dictate the age, or maturity level of a percieved poster.

1. Puz's response was that the way you had written it, it almost seemed like "this happened and this is what they got for it.. are you kidding me?" In effect, perception of what the original post seemed to convey led to this response
2. Freedom of speech does not exist in these forums, as this is not the United States. Now, there is quite a bit of freedom here, but there are limits specified in the forum rules.
3. Good to see that you're teaching responsibility to kids.
4. The age was guessed more off the way the post was written, less off the post count.

1. The way it was written it was the story was copied directly from connpost.com, WTH are you talking about? Your perception of the original post was 100% inaccurate. The are your kidding me comment was my first reaction after reading this in the paper. Dare i ask what were your 1st reaction, pretty much the same i bet. I doubt if you are a true paintballer that you would not offended by this type of behavior.
2. what is it that you are so offended about in the post? since i don't have freedom of speech here. that is ridiculous. stop freaking nit picking u r really destroying the purpose of this story.

We have had the odd members in the past who happily proclaim that drive-bys, shooting marbles or just general vandalism with paintball gear is not only fun but should be more than acceptable behavior. When the flaws of their thinking were pointed out, well, let's just say it didn't go well for them and not just with me.
The members age and number of posts rarely have an influence on how a persons post is perceived, at least with me. Bad behavior is simply bad behavior. The internet doesn't exactly allow for verbal inflection to add weight to your wording. Having a filter dodge in the post didn't help.
Everyone on this forum likes to have fun and loves paintball. None of us want it to be used in such an asinine manner and we certainly do not want members who promote such behavior here.
I do thank you for clarifying your position.
Freedom of speech? Too many people try to use it as a shield yet they refuse to accept the fact that what they say can and will have consequences. Just as if I were to go into your home and make lewd comments/suggestion about your wife/children you'd ask me to leave. I have freedom of speech but does that mean I don't have to abide by your house rules?
The same thing applies here. We have things that are and are not acceptable. If you continue to do/promote the unacceptable you'll be removed and not allowed back, oddly, just like in your own home.
Again I say, without malice, to anyone and everyone on this forum: You don't like that, you know where the door is.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,And with strange aeons even death may die.

Puz, you should have left it at â€śWhat do you think they re kidding about? â€ś and given him a chance to clarify before venting on him. That would have saved a lot of grief on both parts and is the â€śModerationâ€ť a moderator should show when doing their job. I know you and I have had a couple of comments between us for some of my impulsive remarks which caused me a warn. I have no issue with you doing your job when warranted, as was the case on those matters. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m not a mod; I can be impulsive and outspoken at times, which comes off as angry on forums. (Those who know me know I am far from the angry type: more the dry and sarcastic type) I know from our PM's your a better man than your snap response would imply in this case.
As to the actual point of the post, I hope they do 20-life! (No sarcasm in that what so ever)
(Note: Puz posted while I was writing so...well...yea)
