Vineland considers banning paintball from parks
VINELAND, N.J. - February 16, 2011 (WPVI) -- Vineland is considering whether to designate some property where people can play paintball as the city looks to ban people from playing the messy sport in local parks.
The city council is preparing to take a final vote next week on whether to ban paintball playing in municipal parks.
City officials say the action is needed to stem damage to local parks and minimize liability should someone be injured by a paintball.
The ordinance adds paintball guns to a list of other banned recreational weapons, such as javelins and bows and arrows, which carry a fine of up to $1,000.
