    Shooting someone with an airsoft gun

    I was just reading a thread on another forum where a guy moved from an area where there was zero crime to one with higher than average crime. It appeared like the non-violent type, more like mischief on steroids. One of his gripes was that the college kids would urinate in his yard after a snow storm.

    I was just thinking, would it be illegal/immoral/fattening to snipe them with an air soft gun? It is not a firearm, it is not brandishing (or is it?), it would sting and maybe keep the perps away. On the other hand, I could see lots of legal implications. Opinions.

    Horrible idea. There are some laws in areas where shooting someone with a projectile is highly illegal and on top of that it is assault.

    Airsoft gun, no.

    Paintball gun, Yes!

    They are on your property, it's fair game.

    Although it would be fun, bad idea.

    I once had problems with a neighbors cats going in my yard. They were the kind of neighbors who would open a 15 lbs sack of cat food on their front porch each week and then swear that they only had one cat! Cats being cats they don't crap where they eat. So they move over to the neighbors yards!
    I tried everything to get rid of the hundreds of cats. I tried all the sprays, and granules that are sold to keep cats away to no avail. I put out hundreds of "set" mousetraps under all the bushes and under the decorative bark. I even went to the zoo and purchased Lion poop. This was the most successful as it actually detoured a few but it attracted dogs!
    But the one thing I finally did to stop them......

    I tied my lawn sprinklers to a motion sensor! anything that walked on my lawn got wet! This also kept away sales people, Religious solicitors, and stray kids!

    Dude. If he is willing to get arrested over a plastic pellet (which I think is now considered as 'Assuault with a deadly plastic weapon') shooting a plastic pellet from a scary looking plastic replica of an 'Assualt Weapon', why not just go very large, very earily and put command detonated IEDs in the lawn? Then you would really teach those drunk kids!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Getting the same exact result of getting Arrested.

    Though, I have to admit, the $$fine and potentential (extra) years behind bars might be a wee bit longer with my potential option...................... th3n using a plastic pellet. But it would really teach those Fresh Snow Peeing Terriorists (FSPT)!

    Guess it depends on how much he really hates yellow SMILEY FACES and INITIALS in 'his' fresh snow........

    Just my humble opinion.

    BAN YELLOW SNOW!

    Good way to get arrested,depending on the charge it's possible you ain't gonna own a real gun in the future either

    That would merit return fire, as well.

    While you were standing there with your manhood hanging out peeing in their front yard after a snowstorm?
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
