Get in touch with your reps IL ballers. According to Rep. Macguire's office, this will affect paintball and airsoft.

Taken from Tyger himself off the SpecOps forums, I feel you all need to know about this issue. I suggest you all stay on top of it and follow any outcome of this as it hits pretty close to home for you all...

" Not scare tactics, it's playing out in real life.

I've been getting e-mails from people in the industry about this, and here's the basics.

HB2414 CRIM CD-BANS SEMIAUTOMATIC www.ilga.gov/legislati...ssionID=50


HB4132 CRIM CD-REPLICA WEAPONS www.ilga.gov/legislati...ssionID=50



Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that it is unlawful for any person to purchase, possess, use, sell, give away, or otherwise transfer, or to engage in the business of selling, or to exhibit for sale, any replica rocket propelled grenade launcher, bazooka, artillery piece, grenade, mine, bomb, or items similar to weapons designed and manufactured for military purposes or replicas of those items. Provides that a violation is a Class A misdemeanor.

So what does this mean? In simple terms, anyone using anything that looks, reacts, or appears to be a replica firearm will be in violation of Illinois law. this includes milsim paintguns to toy guns to parade guns that marching bands use. This could also include any paintgun that has a "gun" look, meaning all of them. I got this in my in-box today.


I just spoke to our house rep's office about this legislation. Rep McGuire's office has told me that yes, as the legislation is written, it will outlaw paintball (and air soft) in the state of Illinois. This includes the sale and distribution of paintball supplies. I would appreciate it if you all would begin contacting (and have as many people at your respective companies contact) Representative Edward Acevedo's office to explain how many jobs will be lost, and tax dollars lost if paintball as an industry is outlawed in the state of Illinois. His office number in Springfield is 217-782-2855. This legislation is in 2nd reading- which means there's not a lot of time left. PLEASE do whatever you can to ensure the full impact of this legislation is known by all members of the House.

Thank you.

On a national level, if you get your stuff from PMI, Action Village, Draxxus or any other IL distribution point you are affected. If you use any product from Centerflag or Air America, you're affected. This legislation also opens doors for other states to introduce and implement similar legislation.

If you live in Illinois, call your state representative and tell them you are AGAINST these bills as written! Even if you're not in Illinois, you can help by opposing this bill. Tell them how much revinue will be lost, and how many people will lose jobs and how many taxes will be lost if this bill goes through as is. You want to do something for paintball, this is it.

(As a note, if you don't know who your state rep is, literally google "Who is the state representative for (your town)" and you can get an answer.)


This is in the 2nd reading of legislation already so time is running out for this, please do what you all can to help them out...
