Blindness (and blind spots) will occur,
And will be blamed on the victims.

You cannot tone down a laser to where it won't blind you.
They are banking on people looking away immediately.

People don't really respond that way in reality.

Also looking forward to the triggered convulsions in a portion of the population.

What does the Food and Drug Administration need to approved a weapon? A weapon is neither a food, nor a drug. WTF am I missing here?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2334936


Perhaps they forgot to mention potential permanent blindness could result?

from: [link to www.theblaze.com]

"Not all injuries are minor, however. The researcher recounted the story of a soldier he interviewed after an incident in Iraq a few years ago. While on duty, the soldier fumbled a dazzler he was trying to point at an oncoming vehicle a safe distance away. “He was in an awkward position and illuminated a rearview mirror in such a way that he got a beam directly back into the eye.” The beam had gone less than 6 metres when it hit the soldier in the centre of vision of his right eye, burning the retina and leaving his vision in that eye permanently damaged."

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.
 Quoting: Walking the Walk 11021065


I see a fortune being made by lawyers suing cops on behalf of those who are permanently blinded or have damaged retinas.

Furthermore....how in the HELL does the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) have ANY jurisdiction over these types of weapons and related technology. wtf

 Quoting: Burt Gummer


Manufacturers have "exemptions" from the FDA to sell these types of laser systems, however ONLY to .mil, .gov, or leo. Good luck buying one as a civilian. You can buy the components to build one yourself, but you can not sell it.

This laser outputs enough power to severely damage the retina, even when "modulated" (pulsed). Not to mention the effects of viewing the dazzler through magnified optics.

As a civilian, this means laser protective glasses or filters on spotting scopes or binoculars should be considered...but you'll love this part - most laser filters ARE ALSO RESTRICTED ITEMS!

Cute huh?
