Abolish the law?
Unfortunately i can guarantee that wont happen.

Think of the government position;
they either;

A) Abolish the law and hope that the 19 or so million residents in Australia which they don't know personally will behave themselves and resist the urge to shine a laser in a pilots eyes.

or

B) Ban the importation and use of laser pointers so this sort of thing does not happen again, in effect, a REACTIVE approach into reducing/eliminating the problem.

I'm sure i know which side the government is leaning towards, they defiantly cant afford an incident where a pilot crashes a 747 full of passengers because he was blinded by a laser...

The ban doesn't actually stop the laser attacks. The people doing already have the lasers and they are going to continue to shine lasers at planes. They already knew it was illegal to do so and simply banning lasers isn't going to do a thing. This ban is a poorly thought out blanket ban that was made in response to all of the ridiculous media articles panicking the public.

But see thats the problem there, would people rather nothing be done about the situation merely because Banning lasers only REDUCES the problem and not eliminates it?
With this kind of thought you may aswell abolish all the drink driving laws as you will never get people to drive sober...there will always be one.

The governments response was rash and haste to say the least but they are trying, if you where to compare this to say for example drink driving once again, simply you can still buy alcohol from liquor stores, so the probability of people drink driving is alot higher.
If alcohol wasnt avalible over the counter, well then, there wouldnt be so much drink driving cases and everything else that comes with it.
Im not supporting the government but this IS the mentality they are following...

LESS LASERS = LESS INCIDENTS

POLICE have questioned a group of teenagers, one in possession of a high-powered laser pointer, following two separate laser attacks on aircraft in Sydney.

Police converged on Cabramatta about 5.45pm on Saturday evening, when a call was made reporting laser lights being directed at aircraft.

"A combination of information from the public and police patrols (led to the location of the youths)," a police spokesman said.

Police questioned the group and arrested a 17-year-old boy.

He was interviewed and released pending further inquiries.

Later a laser was directed at a police helicopter conducting a search for a woman missing in the Blue Mountains. The crew reported a green laser light being shone at the aircraft.

The 79-year-old missing woman was found early this morning with no serious injuries.

Last month the Federal Government banned the importation of high-intensity laser pointers following a spate of potentially blinding laser attacks on pilots at Sydney airport.

To deal with the numerous high-energy lasers in the community, the government plans to develop an education campaign.
