Border Patrol To Use Paintballs?

Reports GunPundit.  Throwing rocks is deadly force, depending on the size of the rock.  I agree with Murdoc:

Murdoc’s weapon of choice to “fend off attackers” at the national border would not leave a “small welt.” But I still don’t think the “human rights activists” would like it.

The use of pepperballs probably makes more sense than paintballs either way.

  1. In fairness, they do mention that pepperballs are a possibility. Doesn’t mean the plan makes sense, still.

  2. Not that much sense:

    Note: I’m not defending the actions of illegal aliens trying to cross the border unlawfully. I am saying they need to find a better way for the BP agents to handle the situation rather than arming them with something that isn’t always less than lethal.

  3. I still think the green-tipped M855 ammo classifies as “paint-ball” ammo.

  4. so now we’ll be hearing about illegals wearing gasmasks and padding, and because of that we’ll have to treat on the public dime more heat related issues as well.
