So a mom is mad that people are speeding in her neighborhood, and posted signs that say "WARNING, Speed Limit Enforced by Angry Neighbors with Paintball Guns." She hasn't shot anyone but it's a matter of time until she does and makes a paintball marker look like the new weapon of vigilantes.

Someone go up to these people and tell them upfront that what they are doing is a determent to paintball, not to mention illegal. I am not too sure, but it is true that there was this Christian extremist pastor who were driving around town during Halloween shooting Trick or Treaters with paintball markers a while back?

With people like this around, I am starting to think that the industry itself should start regulating the sales of paintball markers. If the industry don't regulate itself, then the government will.

I hope some soccer mom twat gets busted shooting at a car and gets canned for it. I'd also like the before and after shots of her in jail.

Stupid neighborhood watch rhetoric taken to a stupid extreme.

I'd like to make a sign to go with it:

Indeed. If you're speeding down a street, without a cop to pull you over, and you get shot with a paintball gun by one of these lunatics, it will strike a big blow against these kinds of movements (fortunately). The issue of speeding will be moot, and all that will go on the police report is the act of vandalism.

I hope they don't unleash their foolishness on a car with an open window, or the top down.

I think this makes the police department look worse than the paintball industry. If anything, I would say PB is an innocent bystander here. Considering they have a blog,

http://www.theangryn...s.blogspot.com/

...then we should post comments on their blogs to let them know that there are alternative ways to slow people down. Using paintball guns isn't the best way. Just make sure to give them some ideas that they can use in a constructive way.

There is no reason to skip to vandilism just because of speeders.

If there is such a problem with it go to city hall.

peopel are starting to give Paintball a bad name and at this point im realy starting to get pissed off.

What you NEED to do is mark your territory, Pee on/in the WHOLE school. I mean EVERYWHERE just SOAK IT.

After reading the few posts on that blog that I could muster up the energy to, I strongly discourage anyone writing anything to them.

If you notice their response to ANYTHING that goes against what they want to do, they will simply use every fallacious tool at their disposal to distract from the issue and make them seem as if their cause has some sort of divine provenance.

I doubt they'll really shoot anyone, and when someone paints up their signs, or destroys them, then it will be fine.

Great... The very instruments that make our sport unique are being used as a way to force people to obey laws. Not by police officers, but by citizens.
I hate this. Why don't the residents just continue to fight for a few speed bumps peacefully, instead of using violence?

Also-

Hello,
I am Dan a member and (USA) founder of the World Paint Ball Union. I am writing an open letter to show our disapproval of signs and of the media circus involved with the signs. Paintball markers are made for a design to be used in controlled environments with proper safety devices in place. Malicious paintballs can be very harmful to all
people in the surrounding area even the kids you are claiming to protect with them. Since no one has gone on the record to say wither these signs are meant to be joke, or if you will shoot speeding cars we can only look at this is threats being made with our sporting equipment.

There are multiple things the media as failed to mention. How many of the town people are trained to use a speed calculating device? When did it become ok to threaten violence on someone? When did it become ok to persecute someone with out a conviction? When did it become ok to fire paint filled projectiles travelling 280fps if not more into the public with out any regard to public safety.

I don't blame the community per-say as I live on a street with the same situation, I am also sure that the community people don't realize the harm that can be inflicted from shooting paintball markers maliciously. I do say shame on the Media however.

I am asking two things with this open letter. 1. I would like the media to stop the circus around these signs and actually use your resources for good rather than ratings. Instead reporting the sign, do some research and digging find our why the people aren't being heard why police aren't posting positions on the street. Find out why the people who pay taxes can't get signs or speed bumps. 2. I am asking the community to remove the signs. We will help you in your fight to stop the speeders We can reach out the town, and even local fields and players. I am sure the bulls wouldn't want you to chase after the speeders throwing bats and baseballs t

To the community, we know you didn't mean harm but the signs really hurt our sport. I know people including ones who play don't see anything wrong with this but there is, and here is are 2 scenarios that are very possible. Someone that sees this on the news or reads it in a paper buys a paintball marker to be a vigilante, sees a car that he thinks is speeding and shoots a paintball at it. Instead of the guy hitting the car he hits a kid on a bike in the eye. The end result the person is still speeding and now a child in the community will be blind and missing an eye for life. Then the media will do all new reports that a town of people hurt a child and they should all be
arrested and paintball should be banned. Yes the same media who chuckled at the idea.

The second scenario is that the signs aren't a joke and people really do shoot a driver while he is speeding. Some one shoots the driver it causes him to loose control of his vehicle the vehicle drives into a house or a crowd of people killing someone the vigilante is now someone who committed manslaughter.

These signs set a bad example for the Everyone, The community, The Kids, and the Paintball players.

Paintballs are round dimpled pieces of gelatin, they shoot at 280 to 300 feet per second and can leave welts and bruises. Paintball when played in the correct environment is safe and fun but when played maliciously in a city environment is dangerous and could be deadly.

Thank you for taking you time to read this

The WPBU is an internationally founded Union of Paintball Players both professional and recreational. We are a worldwide nonprofit group that has members from every continent. Our goal is to promote paint ball in a positive light and help the local communities. We do not condone any misuse of Paint ball Markers, or paint balls them self and hope that people that do get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
We have three sections of rules to all of us in the union need to
abide by. These rules can be found on our website


I doubt they'll really shoot anyone,

I hope they don't.

thats kinda funny ya know , paintball guns being the weapon of vigilantes . the other night my neighbor saw some mexicans spray painting graffiti all over our neighborhood so he went outside told them they had 3 seconds to run then shortly after he lit them all up with ropes of paint . it was actually quite hysterical and not all that bad for paintball because they obviously were in no situation to call the cops themselves. ahh makes me lol everytime i think about it.

Ohhhh Noo, This is bad! This is really bad!!! Funny but bad!! Markers used as weapons against speeding motorists, we need to figure out a way to disown this women. Put out a statement saying that normal paintball players are not like this, because this could get VERY ugly!! This women has no fucking clue what she could be doing to an entire sport!
