Subject: At who’s loss do we concider our actions?

I have recently been informed of your web site and found it to be all I was told it would be.

How can you consider this entertainment, good clean fun?  At what expense do we let ourselves to be lead to believe that this is even right, let alone fun.  Would you think it was a correct action if you had lost a loved one in this mass murder of children, teachers, fathers and mothers. I can only think you would be willing to sell your mother or father to the highest bidder.  Have you sold your soul to the evil one?

Please know that this business can and should be considered clean fun, but at what expense do you sell yourself out?  Is it not enough that we are selling the idea of shooting others for the sport of it, fun.  How far do we go before fun is using an AK-47 or some other weapon?  Do you think the minds of the younger people are not impressional?  Read up on the subject, they are very impressionable.

It is with sorrow that I feel compelled to pray for you.  I ask that you feel something within your heart.  It is supposed to be a warm, blood producing organ that we feel Love and compassion in.  Is your heart so cold and hard that you cannot see the difference between good, moral conscience and the need to do what ever to make money.  Has Money become your god?  I pray that you will allow your heart to be softened so as to let the light of  goodness in.  Please don’t let your humanity to stand aside for the all-mighty-buck.  There are many other ways to make money, that are not at the expense of decency.

I am a concerned person, a grand-parent and above all else a human being. Perhaps you still are to?  Consider my words and make a choice that is right for mankind and not yourself.

“And my God will meet all your needs to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”

Phil 4:19



We are glad our site lives up to the expectations.

We consider it good clean fun as nobody gets hurt and people leave happy. You lead yourself to believe that this is fun and right at the expense of a few dollars only. We are not willing to sell our parents to the highest bidder, we are not slave traders. We don’t live in the fucked up slave-trading world YOU are from. Who is the evil one? Please identify him for us.

We can not use AK-47 type weapons in our scenario, that’s just bad for business as we would lose repeat customers. Your violent mind does not belong in a paintball arena.

We do not know if the minds of younger people are “impressional”, whatever that means. If we understood your meaning we could possibly answer.

Hey thanks for your prayers! It’s appreciated!

Actually, the heart does not PRODUCE blood, it simply pumps it through the body. Blood is produced from bone marrow. We suggest you go back and redo your biology classes in school. Also, we feel love and compassion in the brain, not the heart. Again, please go through your biology class.

There are other ways of making money, but this is the one that we have found to be the best way right now, creating a clean fun paintball scenario for all to enjoy. It is for all mankind to enjoy and appreciate.

Your god will meet all our needs? So generous. Thank you so much!

Americans?

Importance: High

Folks –

You have crossed the line into moral bankruptcy.  To further your own economic wellbeing, you have established a business which taps into the vast reservoir of truly sick individuals willing to pay money for an emotional high based on the degradation of other human beings.  Your lack of conscience puts you in an elite group of companions which includes equally destructive businesses such as child pornography dealers, drug dealers, and pimps.

I do congratulate you on having found a way to tap this vast money pool legally.  But, inaccurately, you are furthering the corruption of all of American society, both Canadian and U.S. and are labeling it a “game”. Truly, you should label your business to reflect what it really represents – A training camp….every bit as destructive to this counry as those in Afghanistan.

The saddest part is that you are obviously folks of intelligence, resourcefulness, and truly untapped potential……..why not use your talents to promote the goodness of mankind, instead of its morale decline.

Just a thought.


Guy T. Calafato, 3rd


We could further our “wellbeing” if we knew what that is.

We are barely anything close to “elite” group of anything. We have never heard of them, they never call us or anything. We are far from destroying lives with drugs, your suggestion is a bit off.

We can hardly achieve the level of training offered by a training camp.  First of all we only have paintball markers, not real guns, and we stick to the Columbine scenario, which is not very adapted to any other scenarios. We are nowhere near the caliber of training provided by something like Front Sight Firearms Training Institute http://www.frontsight.com/

From your email address we gather that you are in the military. We consider that promoting the goodness of mankind, instead of it’s moral decline would be YOUR job, as it has been your oath to do so, or at least defend what it is now.

That’s right, you had just a thought. It was cute, though.

In viewing your website–only because of my research on the tragedy at Columbine–I was disgusted that someone would actually have the audacity to create something like you created. How dare you commercialize and profit from the death of innocent young students!

One of the problems with the United States border authorities is that they let people like you cross our borders. Too bad they didn’t do more research into your intentions of anti-peacemaking.

I hope the families of the victims of Columbine do look into your website, only to put you out of business. As a business that condones violence and death of innocents, you have no right to the free enterprise system of the USA.

I’m sorry you take up space in the USA that could be utilized for something so much better. A field of grass would serve more purpose than you.

If audacity disgusts you, perhaps you should not be in the United States.

What? Commercializing and profit from the death of innocent OLD students is OK? Young ones are not fair game?

All our activities are peaceful. It would be different if we used bullets instead of paintballs.

Some victims have seen the site and sent positive emails.

Funny you mention a field of grass, that was exactly what there was where our Columbine recreation now stands.

You should be ASHAMED!!

You people should be more than ashamed of yourselves!!  This is sick!!  There should be a better adjective for you than just “sick” but I don’t think there is anything low enough to describe you for taking a horrible tragedy and profiting from it.  You disgust me and so does anyone who would go to your sick excuse for fun!!

Remember, God does remember what we do here on earth and I believe you will get what’s coming to you for doing this.

How dare you!!

Outraged citizen in Kansas!


We are not more ashamed of ourselves, our level of shame is quite acceptable right now, which is none at all.

This is not sick. We participate in the long lasting memory of this event.

Find your better adjective and please let us know what you find.

Paintball is not a sick excuse for fun. Don’t slam it until you try it!

We know God appreciates our effort to remember those who lost their lives.

Your website is in poor taste as is your theme.  I am an avid paint ball shooter, but can’t stomach this use of a very tragic situation for your profit.  If you must have a theme, pick a war that the US won rather than a rampant shooting at a highschool.    Thanks > > > Harry Cooper


The US has won a war? Please enlighten us.

To my friends, family and colleagues:

I was doing reasearch today on the internet in preparation for a lesson about the 5 year anniversary of the Columbine High School shootings.  I was very disturbed to find the following hit on my browser when I typed in “Columbine High School”

www.columbinepaintball.com

This is apparantly a Canadian small business that relocated to Wyoming because most of their patrons were from the US.  I trust that you will visit the website and then send your comments to them.  Their email address is:

[email protected]

This business is a disgrace to our system of democracy.

I really hate mass emails that have the warm fuzzy line at the bottom that reads, “Pass this along if you care.”  but I think we have a responsibility as parents and citizens to voice our opinion about heinous business practices that trivialize people’s loss, suffering and pain for the sake of the almighty buck.

Enclosed is a copy of the e-mail I sent to them this morning.  Many of you who receive this will view it as an emotional guilt trip.  To some extent, it is, but at what point does our Constituional right of freedom become a violation of someone else’s rights to peace and security?  Condoning the things that Columbine Paintball does flies in the face of everything President bush and former President Clinton have done to combat violence and terrorism.

I believe that Columbine Paintball has crossed the line into a violation of an unwritten moral code that we take by agreeing to be Americans.  Being an American is just as much a choice as being a Christian or a Muslim, or a Republican or a Democrat.  Clearly, the founders of Columbine Paintball missed the memo about being loyal to your country and upholding its values and its code of ethics.


Below is my email to Columbine Paintball:



To whom it may concern:

I am a youth pastor in Michigan who was on the internet doing some research about the 5th anniversary of the Columbine High School shootings.

I was absolutely disgusted to find the website about your business.  What kind of sick and twisted person finds it acceptable to not only capitalize on murder, but finds it acceptable to promote the glorification of violence and the heroism of two criminal mass-murderers who weren’t even heroic enough to stick around to justify their actions?

Be assured that I will be forwarding this e-mail as well as your web address to my address book of well respected, upstanding, moral colleagues and I trust that they will forward it to their colleagues as well.  I promise you that this email as well as your web address is being sent to people who will have no reservations about dragging you name and reputation through the muck and mud that will hopefully put you out of business on the grounds of moral vagrancy.

Sirs, you apparantly have no idea or regard for the pain and anguish suffered by thousands of people because of events like the Columbine shootings.  It is people like you that make it almost impossible for people like me to explain why this world is going to hell.

You are a disgrace to columbine High School, our country, and to the human race.

May God have mercy on your filthy souls.

With utter sincerity,

Kenneth E. Proctor, III
Lansing, MI



We hope you realize that you are in a democratic republic, not a democray.

You celebrate the anniversary of a massacre? Isn’t that disturbing already? You should be ashamed to celebrate the death of innocent teens and teachers. As a pastor, should know better.

Well, how the fuck are we supposed to get the memo about  an UNWRITTEN moral code? As you say, we probably missed it because we are in fact NOT American. Although we enjoy their business!

That is not only sad, but also very un-american to make profit on a situation that ruined many lives. You people should move you’r ass out of America and back to Canada. We all know you don’t like America and you pitiful wastes of life thrive on our losses. People like should you should have to go through such an ordeal. I hope that some day you BASTARDS go through such an ordeal in your life someday.


GO TO HELL,

Sincerly,

R. King


Profiting from a situation that ruined many lives is VERY American. Just look at all government false-flag operations.

We have not gone through such an ordeal, that is why we recreate the event as close as possible in an attempt to re-live it.
