There was going to be another field by ohare paintball and action village and discount paintball, but now there a petion against paintball saying things like "o its a very dangerous sport" and " I think it incourages violence in young ppl". These are ppl who have never played and have now idea what it is like. Because of this the feild lost its sponsers and investers so it never even got open. There is now a rumor spreading about a petion to ban it for all of cook county (chi-town), from here it WILL spread to other counties. Which will mean: NO NPPL, NO PSP, NO LL5,6,7, etc. This is a serious problem and it NEEDS to be fixed or else. After chi-town bans it other cities will follow.

EVEN IF THE REFS DIDN'T, GOD SAW YOU WIPE!!!!!!

Sounds to me like there doing the good ole firework trick. Fireworks are so dangerous, oh there so hazardous, kids are jumping off cliffs and eating babies because of this. God will literaly shit on our faces if we dont bann fireworks!!! lol thats what they did to make fireworks ilegal, now the people in your state are trying to do the same to paintball... It's a shame. Half of them would pick the sport up as a hobby if they ever played.

It seems like this is something you could take up with city council, or whatever the powers at be are. Someone needs to bring this up to whoever is in charge of these petitions and give them the lowdown. Professionalism would be the key here to persuade ill informed people. That really sucks to here, I can't believe that people who are just suits in an office are gonna try and kill an entire sport in an area. Especially if they've never experience it themselves.
Owning a Cocker is like dating a high maintenance chick,.... I don't have a saying for that, it just is.

I agree with all of you guys. People are always just looking for something to blame the worlds problems on. Usually the thing they decide to blame is a small group that is completely unrelated to the event that pissed them off in the first place.

dude good luck to you. it seems like once a small group of people are dead set on hating paintball, it spreads like wildfire. Like the gentlemen above said, take this issue up to your local city government. Talk to them about the safety implements, the fun it encourages, and the plain old facts that everyone knows. Playing paintball in a safe environment has never lead to a death. at least as far as i know.
Always have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

this is nuts. i am glad there is no such groups around here trying to do this. the funny thing is, this sport is no different then any other. They all have their risks. If all safty proceedures are followed and proper safty gear is used the chance of injury is very minimal. I could say i want to ban hockey because when players on ice fight they promote fighting to young people in hockey.

The few people who have misused paintball markers, IE drive-bys or painting property have caused people to think of this sport as a joke when really its not.

I wish you luck and remember if anybody here is going to appose this, be the bigger person.

i love it when people blame violence on video games or paintball. Do you blame car accidents on the automobile industry?

The petition was cancelled cause thankfully bussinus owners had a meeting and went to the petitioners and got them to play it for themselves and they turned out liking it. (most were like 70 yr olds). That kinda stuff pisses me off, they have never even tried it and now its ok.

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

Please I doubt anything will happen.. The corrupt politics just want some of the major paintball brands to pay to keep paintball legal. Like I wouldn't be surprised if they made PSP/NPPL pay to keep paintball...
