How did U.S. company Tippmann despite U.S. sanctions sell the IR security apparatus over 90% of the paintball guns they’re using to repress unarmed protesters? We need an investigation & those responsible must be identified.
Tippmann is an American manufacturer of paintball markers and paintball equipment, including military simulation (MilSim) kits. A related company, Tippmann Industrial Products manufactures manual and pneumatic heavy-duty sewing machines primarily used for leather, other leather-related equipment, and some industrial products. Originally a family-owned business run from Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 2004 Dennis Tippmann Sr. sold a majority ownership stake to Summit Partners, a private equity firm. Tippmann designed one of the first automatic markers, the use of refillable air systems in place of 12 gram cartridges, the “Cyclone Feed” system, the “Flatline” barrel, and the Tippmann C-3, the first propane-powered marker.
