  1. They should do a buy-back program and ban them. Pretty strange to give out felonies for something sold without even asking for ID. They don't come with warning labels either. They caught a poor sap who didn't know and can't afford to sue the manufacturer I suspect.

  2. maybe they shouldnt be intentionally over peoples property

  3. What about the dangers of children, or criminals, playing with the perfectly legal five watt pointers, which can burn through wood and steel at distances greater than ten feet? Why does anyone need an un-licensed LED laser pointer, which can burn through steel?

  4. Sell the public a deadly device, that can down a Fa King 747, at the dollar tree checkout? They arrested the wrong people.

  5. i though it aliens 🤦‍♀️

  6. I think that's a reasonable way to protect ourselves from eyes in the sky. More cops should be in prison for crimes but no. Paid vacation

  7. These laser attacks should be treated as terrorism. Very dangerous.

  8. Laser = 5 years a felon tht looks really good on resume so now no job and a burden to society's perfect

  9. If it happens so often, why not just wear the protective eyewear all the time. Like a seat belt…..

  10. Omg are people that STUPID!?

  11. The guy that did this should be permanently blinded himself

  12. He looks like a RightWing type
