hey just yet another sad post about people doing the wrong thing. recently in Australia many people have been pointing lasers at planes and this really really.... bugs me.... heres the article. http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=280067
tho how on earth do you stop some 9 year old with a laser? its really going to destroy our hobby in Australia as they're thinking of banning ALL hand held lasers over 1mW.... though what can be done?

This is total idiocy! It's like when people say "this is too much for my kids to watch on TV, I request it be removed or banned" Then it stops airing! It's the few idiots who can't control their kids and talk some sense into them that ruin it for the rest of us!

:(

P.S. I'm sure this post will get me a lot of heat... so... :-/

Daedal, I TOTALLY agree with you. It seems these days more people try to please the small populations in fear that they will try making a scene.

over here i believe the ban on all portable lasers over class II is primarily because of the chav fad a few years back of using cheap reds to blind bus drivers...
