Also, you can also print a page with all the safety indications for correct use on it, and keep it with you, and if asked, show also that, with all the other papers, saying that it was with the laser, when you buyed it (always as example, art 4 of our ordnance say that the commercialization ban is not applied for pointers "commercialized for professional specific uses" and completed with all the informations for a correct usage ..... it's not a 100% safety, but is always one more nail for hang the hope )
here in my country, the sale of laser pointer is totally banned after that incident in the football match, they told about it on news in tv.. you cant find anywhere nothing >1mw, and for things around 5mw you need to go to hardware store and buy a measuring level. but as you know, they have often a diffraction lens that flushes the beam in an angle from 0 to 90 degrees.
Anyway is possible to break them, and use the bare diode and it's driver for whatever you want, i did it for building some light sabers for photography.
Dont think they did turn on the laser at all, is just my impression.
