    Angry Guns and kids

    Maybe I am just old but I was told never to point a gun at anyone. I just was talking to a anti gun person, who told me how bad guns are, but on Sat. he take his sons to a paint ball field and tell them to have fun, and go shoot someone. How can we tell kids to be safe and follow the gun safety rules when people go out and shoot at each other for fun?

    Start with the parent.....if they are going to let their kids use paintball guns, which are also/can be dangerous..the parent should have to get some kind of training, whether it be classroom, or from someone who has shooting experience.

    That's just hypocritical. Idiots in this world still surprise me.

    Sounds a little ironic doesn't it? Amazing.

    Um let me see. Paintball Gun.... Real gun. Totally different.

    The only time you shoot a paintball Gun is on the field whenever everyone is geared properly. Do not shoot at people who aren't playing or animals or anything that shouldn't be shot. Have been playing paintball for 10 years. Please don't try to associate this to idiocy.

    Wow, awesome post OP.

    You know the very start of your post says it all. When I got my first handgun (i've had shotguns and rifles all throughout the years) sometimes if I trusted a friend I might show it to them. One of the first things they would do is point it at someone. CONSTANTLY when I am around even the smartest intelligent people I find they are ridiculously stupid when it comes to proper handling and care of weapons.

    Another hypocrisy I see alot are the same people who are okay with you shooting people virtually a la video games or films are the ones who are also against guns and for gun control. So its okay to virtually kill people but you want to take my right away to own a gun because inside your a psychopath?

    Don't get me wrong I like video games and action movies too. But as a psychology student, I feel that many of these anti-gun nuts are P R O J E C T I N G their insecuirties onto responsible gun owners. In other words, the fear they feel from guns is the fear that THEY will do something. I guarantee you these anti-gun folks are all pretty unstable folks themselves who if they did have a gun they would do something evil. Thats what is the most unsettling fact to me.

    So honestly you are telling me that none of you played Cops and Robbers when you grew up? None of you had a rubber band gun that you shot at your friends?

    I find it somewhat gratifying that it isn't just the anti's that are unable to tell the difference between real and fantasy. Some kind of balance there.

    I understand your frustration, but we are talking about two different subjects. The paintball experience is great fun and to be honest it is fun shooting others. It is the closest thing to really shooting someone without really doing so, and some want to ban paintball...Is your friend in denial, or is he really anti???
