A paintball gun is unequivocally a toy. In normal use, it can not kill anything. It may put a small red mark if it is shot at close range but it is not meant as a weapon for protection or to kill anything. There are safety precautions that should be taken when playing with them. At the very least eye protection is a necessity. This does not make it a weapon anymore than having to wear a helmet when riding a bike makes the bike a weapon. Nor do knee pads and a helmet make skates and skate boards weapons.
