    Default Need your help please Guys

    i am passing this around as many forums as i can find. can as many of you who agree please sign this petition.

    many thanks guys

    Many of us here have been watching the story about the potential German paintball ban with concern. -> http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/8067908.stm

    Now here is your opportunity to speak up.

    Sign the petition here.

    If you don't read German, we have English instructions in the next post.


    Details of the petition (in German):
    https://epetitionen.bundestag.de/ind...;petition=4145


    Text of Petition (translated roughly from German):
    The German Bundestag should reject the proposed ban on sports such as Paintball / Gotcha Laserdrome.

    A ban of these sports is pure politics as symbol, without any benefit. For paintball and Laserdrome are two players or entire teams in a sporting contest against each other. The act of killing is just as abstract as in chess or fencing. Similarly, the fencing will be needed here too, thanks to protective clothing "ungefähliche 'weapons at each. This is just as immoral as children's outdoor water pistol games or "Cowboy and Indians."

    We need 50,000 votes within the next 3 weeks. Everyone can vote, no matter which nationality.

    Instructions are here:

    If you decided to sign this petiton, here are the steps and their translations:

    1. The first site you will see when you hit the link is this:



    You have to register first, so you can sign the petition.
    2. When you click on the "Registrieren" link you're going to see this site:



    Please fill out the form to the best of your abilities, with correct data, and keep an eye on the Captcha at the end.
    3. The field reserved for "state" ("Bundesland") has to be set to "Ausland", which means that you are from abroad.
    4. Hit the button with "Senden", and wait for your confirmation email.
    5. It contains a link you need to click to finalize your registration, then, you are good to go. You will also have a user ID, which will look like this: "NutzerXXXXXX" - Nutzer means "user."

    When this is done, you are ready to sign the petition. None of the data will be used for commercial, civil or persecutive means, this just signs the petition on an official website of the German gouvernment.

    Many thanks for your support. This could affect alle European ballers even ballers around the world. So please support us avoiding another proposal on a ban. We really need the help of all ballers around the globe.

    Many thanks!
    Florian
    this is the official petition which is confirmed and authorised by the German government. If we reach 50,000 votes they need to review the next try of banning paintball and invite the spokesperson of the German Paintball Community. Therefore this is more important then ever.

    Ban is avoided for now, but important German politicians still want to ban it. Therefore we need as much pre-work as possible. This can affect all of us ballers, think of the Millennium and so on. So please do support us and vote.

    Thanks!

    So let me see if I've understood this correctly?

    Due mainly to a German schoolkid going a bit loopy-loo and shooting 15 people dead with real guns, they want to ban paintballing over there as they think it encourages violence?, and they think that anyone paintballing is then going to go and get hold of a real gun and start killing people for real?!!

    Jeez, I thought PC had gone mad in this country but the German's have just taken the lead!
