For starters they are called paintball markers, not guns.

They're called guns in the states. Just using the term "marker" isn't going to make the lawmakers fall in love with IPPA and change the laws. Gun is fine. Especially for woodsball

Funny, every team I've played from the states has used the term "Marker" and so does nearly every major international tournament. But hey, you must be right.
And it makes a huge difference to the attitude you get when you walking into An Garda. For example, Airsoft Guns are not the same as Paintball Markers in the eyes of many people that I've spoken to from DOJ and An Garda. You do get a much better response when you say marker. Gun could be a 50 cal while a marker seems more refined and less lethal.
