Germany May Ban Paintball/Airsoft

In an interesting move, Germany’s ruling Social Democrat party is proposing legislation to outlaw all games in which players shoot each other with pellets according to a 7 May report in the UK Telegraph.

This comes on the heels of a shooting in Winnendon in which a 17 year old used a handgun owned by his father to kill 15 people. The SPD feels such games trivialize violence and risk lowering the threshold for committing violent acts. Proposed legislation would incur fines of up to 5,000 euros.
