Time for laser pen ban

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - COMMENT -

There seems no good rea­son for chil­dren to have laser pens in their pos­ses­sion. Yet the po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous items – some would say, weapons – are freely avail­able.

Tales of pi­lots be­ing mo­men­tar­ily blinded by them have be­come com­mon­place, but to tar­get a mil­i­tary aero­plane, as hap­pened in the skies over Perth, is sheer reck­less­ness.

The UK Govern­ment has taken ev­i­dence on a pos­si­ble ban. The case has surely been made.
