How awesome is this? Seriously, watch the video on the page. A laser mounted on a boat shooting down an aerial drone about two miles away. It then blows up and falls into the sea. Isn’t that cool?
Look, I know this may be a couple years in the future, but I really want a laser gun. One I can hold and shoot like a real gun. Think Star Wars (the movie, or the program, whatever) but real. Wouldn’t that be cool? I want to shoot laser holes in stuff. And once the laser gun is developed, guess what comes next – that’s right, the light saber. All they need to do is limit the distance that the laser protrudes from the initial place and make the light saber hard so when a light saber hits another light saber it stops.
The reason I’m saying this is that with this kind of technology manageable, non-clunky laser weapons systems are going to be coming out in the next three or four decades. The NRA needs to get on this now. I want a civilian laser, I don’t need some liberal idiot dissecting the 2nd amendment and spitting it back out in a way that says that the founding fathers envisioned the existence of lasers and expressly forbid them based on the wording in the Bill of Rights. So, NRA, forget about what you’re doing now. Handguns are great, but lasers are better. Focus everything on lasers. Look to the future; I know I am.
