I read with interest the article in the paper about a city councilman’s departure. I was amazed to learn that he had voted against imposing restrictions on paintballs. His position was based on the Second Amendment.
The Second Amendment! Wow! For me, it just brought up all sorts of possibilities. Perhaps the Second Amendment would protect spit wads — projectiles used both for aggression and defense. What about pea gravel? It’s used with slingshots, but if it isn’t perfectly round, its trajectory is uncertain. Anyway, you get the idea.
So, children have a constitutional right to keep and bear paintballs? Really? I imagine that other thinkers would be interested in this issue also. People like Jay Leno.
