What say ye?
Is there a case for self-defense against someone shining a laser at you?
**I'm not talking about the laser pointer to the chest... I'm talking about someone attempting to blind you by shining it in your face.**
I read the article below and it reminded me of an instance where I was backing up a fellow store investigator and some kids were shining bright laser pointers at us as we wrestled with a guy on the ground. My partner was temporarily blinded - now this was over ten years ago. Modern day laser pointers are far, far brighter and more dangerous.
So the article I'm linking is about a laser show where the beams were so powerful, that even when refracted by rain droplets they caused permanent eye damage including up to 80% blindness in at least one case.
