Didn't read the whole link, but it looks like it's targeting milsim markers and "look alikes." Don't think it's a ban on paintball, just that aspect.

Wouldn't surprise me if Oklahoma falls suit soon. Appears they are trying to pass legislation to ban the use of 4 wheelers for people under the age of 12 because another kid got hurt bad (possibly died.) With the increase of "Wal-mart" guns being sold and kids shooting each other's eyes out, wouldn't doubt paintball is far behind...

This would suck for kingman since they just came out with the military style markers.

I'm pretty sure IL banned paintball guns in public long ago. I remember a thread about this back on OSKUSA.

Edit: Read the article, this is different. At first I didn't want to click on a specops link.

I guess this means we need to fire all the IL mods if this goes through, since they won't be able to play anymore.

they can not ban kingman productys. its impossible. ever read the side of the ESP frame???? didnt think so. thats why its there. so if anyone tries to file a law suite on kingman for some dumbasses death or injusry all they have to do is point to the frame and they win. and if ur the kind of person who sands the anno right off the ESP frame then u cant file a law suite since it has nothing to do with kingman.

LMAO Its called *Operator Error*

Sounds like a part of the liberal disease has affected Illinois. Hide your firearms boys, they'll be next -

damn well said, bomber. it is 100% true, i have grown up w/ guns my whole life and i have nothing but respect for them and what they can do, and i thank my parents for teaching me that respect so i can teach my future kids the same. it is the parents/gardians fault not the sport or product.

Actually this is a very serious note. They are banning "replica" firearms. This is such a super soaked bill they are trying to pass that it really does not define what they consider "replica". It can include anything paintball related because anything paintball will have a frame, a barrel, and shoots a propellant and an object. Sucks living in a state predominantly controlled by left wing gun hating nuts. What to do now. We have to find out and send some letters to the people in power. If this happens to my state you can pretty much bet that your state will be next. Again we need to strike fast and start writing some intelligent letters to our elected officials.
