[quote:Anonymous Coward 11086453:MV8xNzg2OTU3XzI5NzAyNjQ3XzhDOUI3OERF] [quote:Anonymous Coward 11083570:MV8xNzg2OTU3XzI5NzAyMTcyX0QyOTNDOTE3] I am not that impressed. I actually built a laser "web" for home defense. I have a long hallway that can be totally saturated with high power lasers. There is not a single place you can go in the hallway (25+ feet long too) where you will not get blinded by the lasers. I have protective glasses (for me and gf) that we can place on and pass up and down the hallway after hitting a button to activate the laser web. Anyone entering the hallway not knowing what is there (and they will not) will be a sitting duck and which point if they are armed invaders they will meet certain doom at our hands. Defensive systems are just as important as offensive. I built this using the highest power lasers easily purchased online... and servos with mirrors. NO WAY TO PASS THIS HALL WITH YOUR EYES OPEN -- and that is a long way to try to pass with your eyes closed. [/quote] ^ I like you ^ :applause: [/quote]

Last month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a non-lethal weapon — once reserved only for the military — as a new tool for local law enforcement and the U.S. Coast Guard.
FDA Approves Laser Dazzler for Local Law Enforcement
GLARE Enforcer laser dazzler.
New Scientist reports that at the SHOT show in January, a conference for professionals involved with sport shooting, hunting and law enforcement, the 200-milliwatt GLARE Enforcer was unveiled by B.E. Meyers Electro-Optics as the first laser dazzler available for domestic use.
Laser dazzlers work by temporarily blinding a subject using a green laser with no risk of killing the person, unlike the risk associated with tasers and guns outfitted with rubber bullets. But according to New Scientist, there is still risk involved that has some questioning if they should actually be used, even with FDA approval.
