As I understand it, Donald Trump recently said that paintball guns at protests are “defensive” and “not offensive.” First of all, Trump wouldn’t know. He is not a veteran, and is in fact a five-time deferred draft-dodger. Second, paintball guns are not “defensive” against real firearms. Third, given these facts, paintball guns are probably PROVOCATIVE, since they LOOK LIKE REAL FIREARMS, and the contents of the balls CANNOT BE ESTABLISHED, even if one KNOWS that they are “just” paintball guns. As I have written before, paintball guns at protests, I would suggest, are extremely dangerous, and should be prosecuted.
