We have had laser guns(the ones you saw in star wars and stuff like that) for some time now, well not we as in "we" i mean their is a secret society who has stuff like that but if i tell the name i will be thought a nut and i get enough of that in my school.

but on the topic i don't think they should be allowed, we should stick to good old projectiles, those guns from Starship Troopers were pretty tight though.

Meh, there is no law in warfare, those bans are a joke.

its not harmful lasers im worried about...its the unharmful lasers that when swept thru magnyfying optics..then become bad against eyesight.

People forget that lasers will still be effected by magnifying lenses and such there fore a laser beam fired into any type of night vision optic that also magnifys can result in the beam tightening to a point that it burns against the rods and cones of the eye.

laws my tail end...

Does it really matter if you are killed or wounded by a laser or a regular gun? I don't think so.

Lasers are more used than commonly known.
Some NATO countries use them (successfully) for protection from airborne attacks and for ship defense against speed boats.

I'm with the people who say it's stupid to ban lasers. That's like when there was a ban against crossbows, and we see how that worked out for them.

The UN has a lot of bans. But then again why should China listen to us? I mean yes we have lasers the High Energy Tactical Laser for anti-arty use and stuff but its inhumane to use lasers against gound combatants but why would they listen?

True, but we have fragmentation grenades that can blind people. Maybe this weapon they have will be used for riots/protest.

A frag is not ment to blind, they are ment to kill mot blind, blinding lasers are ment to blind, emphasizing on blind.
