Frankly, don't know enough about the science to have an informed opinion...
If those little hand lasers can compromise a pilot flying an airplane with several hundred passengers, then perhaps they should be outlawed.
Seems kind of weird that a 12.00 doodad you can buy anywhere will get you thrown into prison if you point it at the sky...
But again, I really don't know shit about these little stocking stuffers...
