    Westside Baptist Church senior pastor Greg Kaminski wants to know if anyone has a few dozen Spyder Xtra paintball guns for sale. His query doesn’t stem from any particular personal interest in the game. The real reason why he’s looking for that specific brand of gun is because nearly 40 of them were stolen late Wednesday or early Thursday from a locked storage shed behind the church. “It’s just disappointing to us,” Kaminski said. “I can’t tell you how disheartening it is.” Kaminski and his wife founded the Bethel neighborhood church in 1979. He said that during his first 29...

    The German government wants to tighten gun laws and ban paintball games in response to a school shooting in which 16 people were killed in March, coalition sources said on Thursday. Experts from Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives and her Social Democrat (SPD) coalition partners had agreed to ban paintball games, in which players shoot at each other with pellets containing paint, the sources said. The governing parties say games like paintball trivialise violence and risk lowering the threshold for committing violent acts, the sources said. Infringements to the new rules, which the cabinet hopes to pass before a general election...

    Five men who planned an attack on Fort Dix got their inspiration from Osama Bin Laden and their terror training from paintball games, a prosecutor charged Monday. "Their motive was to defend Islam," Deputy U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick told a federal jury in Camden, N.J. "Their inspiration was Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden. Their intent was to kill members of the United States armed services." The men turned paintball games in 2006 and 2007 into terrorist training sessions and discussed a plot to sneak into the New Jersey Army base and kill soldiers, the government says. No attack was...

    TUCSON - Some surprising news came from the United States Border Patrol. The Patrol has purchased 1,000 guns that fire non-lethal paintball or pepper pellets. The goal of a target practice session was to hit the white rag at the end of a hall with paintballs. Border Patrol agents may soon use paintballs to defend themselves against smugglers along the border due to an increase in violence. Surveillance video from an incident last year in El Paso shows a Border Patrol agent retreating after people pelt him with rocks. Some could argue the same about being hit by a paintball...
