Paintball Guns Given To Belgian Cops In Bid To Stop Another Charlie Hebdo

Police in one Belgian city are now being armed with paintball guns.

Rapid response units in Antwerp are being handed the non-lethal weapons, familiar to stag doers and wannabe warriors across the world.

Police chiefs say that the new semi-automatic firearms are designed to be used in densely-populated areas.

    I wonder how they will work in comparison to some guy with an AK47?

  • David

    Batshit crazy does not begin to describe these idiots.

  • FactsWillOut

    They should give them those rainbow-shooting shirts the Care Bears use.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Make the balls out of khanzeer scheiss.

  • The Butterfly

    We’re doomed.

    Populations don’t get much denser than Belgium.

    I would like them a LOT if they were filled with pig’s blood….

    • V10_Rob

      THAT at least might work.

  • Jaedo Drax

    Under the firearm act, the FN303 may not even qualify as a firearm, that being said, the Boston Police no longer use them since they did shoot someone’s eye out.

    Guess they’ve never heard the saying, “Don’t bring a paintball gun to an AK-47 fight”

  • Alain

    They first need to consult the Muslims to find out what their favourite colour is before loading.

    When you’re hit in paintball, most rules oblige you to walk off the field with hands in the air.

    Did the braintrusts simply conclude that being hit by paintballs automatically induces surrender in combatants? “Nobody is THAT stupid” is the gut reaction, but these days I seriously wonder about that…
