My town has decided to evict the local paintball field by saying it is hurting the environment. Please sign this petition to save the field and help save jobs!

You can claim anything over the internet, alot of liars out there.
I for one hate liars, which is why I live on my private £100,000,000 Yacht as far away from liars as possible with servants who shoo away the liars.

They didn't open up a field on a nature reserve. They were in business there for years, then the town bought the land they are operating on and called it a nature reserve.

These guys have been there for years and this is going to shut them down.,That's environmentalists for you. ”Fuck the people, I just want to make sure the little frogs are ok.”

yes, I did read the whole stroy before posting, I think that if in was environmentally unsafe for a paintball field then I think they should have had them evicted a long time ago, I'm sure this place can relocate.

You do realize its not just that simple as picking up and moving somewhere else right? Thats in itself would costs a ton of money, then you will have to find a new customer base wherever you can set down your roots again. Cousin's paintball was there for over 25 years, the town decided to buy hundreds of acres and call it a nature reserve to not have condos built and other junk built on it, yet was fine with cousin's staying there. Paintball doesnt hurt the environment in any way. But whatever i guess the woods in your area would be better off not being played in, shit the environment and little froggies would be a ton better to if you didnt have a house built on their land, or a car polluting their air.

Cousin's has donated thousands of dollars to countless charities over the years. They provide jobs for a lot of people, and help keep other businesses in the area running. Just think without a paintball field in that area you lose the out of towners that come in for the weekend or a day to play, then the local restaruants take a hit because they loose a good chunk of business, the gas stations also start hurting, now they both have to lay people off to compensate for it etc. When you shut down a well established business like Cousin's paintball you are just creating one giant negative ripple effect, that we really dont need in an economy like this. Sure frogs are great but they arent going to pay your bills or put food on the table for you, and they sure as hell arent going to invite you to stay on their lillypad when your ass gets evicted to save them

Exactly ... hate to break it to you brothers and sisters but having spoken directly with the field owner yesterday, we are well past online petitions, what needs to happen is pressure put on the politicians to allow Cousins more time to relocate before enforcing the eviction ... feel free to see the Catshack article for all of the contact information and send each of the council members a polite request in support of the field.
