The Laser Pointer Ban in Australia

What is an easily purchased item in most countries is undergoing a ban in Australia. Legislation is being enacted to ban laser pointers:

“High-powered laser pointers could be banned in yet another state as governments caution the light beams could be used for “mass murder”.

Regulations banning lasers will be introduced to the New South Wales Parliament next month.”

The laser pointer falls under the category of “prohibited weapons” and permits will be necessary for its use.
