    1. not watching, but as children we are taught to constructively use our energy, relieve stress/frustration, and get fit in the process, but these humans simply missed that train. Now you’re trying to fix manChildren which is nonsensical. No one else is speaking their ‘language’, they are the outcasts of the human race and they know it. They are the reason for concealed carry for people who can’t afford private security details at gov’t expense and gated communities with their own private police forces on site, as well as special call buttons that instantly dispatch lights and sirens of two (minimum) police officers regardless of anything.

  1. are the colors of paintballs going to translate to the color of the gangs?

    Like crips are blue paintballs and bloods are red paintballs?

  2. These grown men playing shooting games all day and disrupting other people’s lives because they’re bored should do something constructive with their lives. Quit smoking dope, drinking beer, and doing drugs. Get a job. Go to school. Enlist in the military. Enlist in the army if you like to shoot guns and get paid for it. Grow-up.

  3. I’ve been thinking a lot about this since I first saw it last year. My thought was the city could demolish some of these abandoned houses and build places for them to play in, if they have that much for problem with paintball. If I lived in Chicago I would definitely participate in this. I agree to the fact that they should not have banned it. Probably because they make more money off of dead people, than they do people playing with paintball.
