I come from the other site with bad news. Cousins Paintball of Coram, Long Island, New York is under attack by a politically motivated council member. I looked through the News forum here, as well as the Chatter and Regional thread and could not find anything about this. I apologize beforehand if I have broke any rules but I believe this is something that the paintball community as a whole needs to come together for. I have posted on her Facebook wall and she deleted it within an hour and is now censoring anyone that has to do with paintball. To quote ForeverZero143:
Cousins Paintball in Coram Long Island has been a staple of the Brookhaven community for over 25 years. Recently it has come under attack by narrow sighted politicians who believe that the 88 acres we play on should better be used for well NOTHING.
Cousins Paintball provides countless jobs for high school students and college students who live in the local area and serves as a revenue source for man...y of the local businesses on Rt 112.
In a time where the county is raising taxes because of lack of revenue and unemployment is at a all time high is this really the best decision for our community.
Cousins Paintball has raised over 40k in the past 4 years for the wounded warrior project and the American Vet Dogs Foundation. Not to mention the countless local charities who reach out to us for donations.
We are not only uniting to protect paintball but we are uniting to protect jobs in our community and tax revenue for our town.
Please post here and help support the cause. Please keep it polite.
