How much harm can one little
laser pointer do? Actually, a lot. Did you know that pointing a
laser at an aircraft can distract or temporarily
blind the pilot, potentially putting the lives of many innocent passengers at
risk? That’s why it’s a federal crime with serious consequences like fines up to 250,000 dollars or up to 5 years in jail. So come on, people. It’s not a harmless joke. Lose the laser.
