I'm sick and tired of reading stupid responses from guys who haven't read bothered to read.
I just got an NRA-ILA alert that the Massachusetts congress Joint Committe on Public Safety and Homeland Security is going to be discussing a number of gun related bills on Thursday, November 19 including "An Act Prohibiting the Use of Paintball Guns".
I haven't been able to find the text of the bill. Thought you folks might be interested though.
Full content of the email alert is at http://www.nraila.or...ad.aspx?id=5206
EDIT: BigFoot has been able to find the text of the bill. His post is quoted below for easy reference. At first read, this doesn't look too bad. S-967 is the law beind discussed on Thursday. Basically it creates a $100 fine for shooting across public roads, etc., or for possession of a marker by a minor in a public place. There is a specific exemption for people at paintball fields.
S-967 sponsored by Sen Morrisey: basically the proposed law stats that no minor under the age of 18 shall be in a public place without an adult, and cannot discharge it PDF link right here: http://www.mass.gov/...pdf/st00967.pdf
S-1001 sponsored by R. Tisei: proposed that you cannot sell a paintball/bb/air rifle to a person under the age of 18, and also inclued the same terms in S-967 where a minor cannot discharge a paintball/bb/ air rifle in a public way/train depot, alley way, etc etc
