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
