It really frustrates me. My parents shouldnt have to be with me so I can buy some spray paint or paintballs. Luckly, there is a local huntin store that sells them to minors around here. Oh well, i will be 18 in 4 months.
not all states can you drive at 16

I think this is avoiding a problem. It'* simple to take away the tools, but the kids are the problem, not the paintballs. They will find another way to cause problems. I do think you should be 16 to buy paintballs because it'* not safe for kids to play with those toys without parental supervision.

This is new? When I was in highschool I used to play all the time and I would always get crap for not being 18 and rarely if ever would they be sold to me at Dicks or Walmart. (Walmart cards for everything including the JBweld I bought 3 days ago)

I say you should be 40 or older to buy anything. Including lettuce.

Oh jeez don't get me started on the canned air. Gotta be 18 here to buy it, AND now it'* $7.50 a CAN!

But yeah, I think of paintball guns are as much of a weapon as real guns are. They can hurt animals, people, and can destroy many things due to the paint. As I said before, I am all for the 18+ law on them.

yea because if you freeze lettuce you then can use them as cannon Balls and Shoot Plains put of the air and then you can use the lettuce Balls to break down walls and blow up buildings
