its not the legal issues that we are concerned about.. its the moral issues!The richardson's ground squirrel is a common species round these parts
as for "hunter"..note the quote marks..for legal reasons
Why you even writing here if you're in NY? asking for canadian legal help here
And to all saying I will be penalized harshly, this is not like the USA where the prison system is a big marketing scheme and you get 20 years for sneezing, so show respect or go away from my listing
respectfully, you have no clue as to how I treat the gophers, yes on this property there reside what would be considered a large squad of gophers, by no means do I treat them like livestock, vermin, or pests. They may leave at any timeWould you point it at one of your gophers eyes if it went AWOL on you?
Your way of life and thinking is ... strange. You mentioned the gophers to ... brag? Establish your higher standing in life?pipe down, gents
this is not the first time i had discussions with 1-dimensional thinkers and mischief makers.

only thanks to Dutch fellow so far who gave good info.
to others, I almost thanked you gents for the "information" you guys were providing. but you felt like such big boys that you know something better than me about lasers.. My god, how exclusionary
Will update when RCMP contact me
You say "only a blue laser not red" what is that supposed to mean? A 1W blue laser is more dangerous to eyes than other wavelengths because blue causes photochemical induced retinal damage in addition to thermally induced injury due to absorbed energy.gang, let's be honest here.
This is a tense situation and we have recieved no word from the RCMP. Each day my son asks if there will be consequences. and i dont know what to answer. which is why i come here. Even put "Canada" in the header
This is only a blue laser, not red. Also, only one intruder was flashed.
"As of June 2011, it is illegal to import, sell, or provide (meaning giving to anyone, including to you son), high-powered portable lasers (Class 3B and Class 4) to a consumer in Canada under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act. That means you. There are no loopholes. The regulations are purposefully structured to be extremely conservative and broad in scope. It doesn't matter what you intend to use them for, or that you already have one, or whether you think that you're not a "consumer". If you are not a scientist working in a laser lab at a University, or a CLSO, or an OEM which is integrating these lasers into other devices for commercial purposes, then you are a consumer.Why you even writing here if you're in NY? asking for canadian legal help here
Please do.Will update when RCMP contact me

A 1W blue laser is powerful enough to permanently blind someone in less than the blink reflex time of 0.25 seconds. Blue is more dangerous to eyes than green or red because distance at which flash blindness occurs is less than the distance away at which ocular damage occurs--in other words the flashblind effect range falls within the eye damage range -- you can't use a blue laser to flashblind/dazzle without the risk of causing serious permanent eye damage. This is why all laser dazzlers are green not blue because you can flashblind with green without causing permanent eye damage. For more nformation see: Laser Pointer Safety - Different lasers' hazards compared As was mentioned in post #9 of this thread ---- blinding lasers are banned even as weapons of war by UN treaty . See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protocol_on_Blinding_Laser_Weapons
Im on the fence about if its a troll or not.. its just too weird and random for some one to "make the story up" kinda thing.
He says he came for legal advice or whatever and he got it. He didn't like what he heard and was offended by it!!!
I thought of doing the same thing! Although what I can say about that is that a laser is vastly more dangerous than the sun. From what I could find, it takes more than one minute (>60 seconds (It actually said 100 sec, but I'd rather be safe with estimates)) to cause eye damage from looking at the sun. Which must be somewhere equal to 1-5mW of laser power.I was about to ask if the "this is only a blue laser" part was a joke or something.
Would be nice if someone could do the maths on how much mW of a laser equals the amount of damage done by looking directly at the sun for a second, with your unprotected eyes. I think someone said looking down the barrel of a 1mW laser for a second would be worse than looking at the sun for a second. That should say enough.
