The Right to Keep and Bear Lasers

A German firm successfully tested a laser weapon system, cutting a 1/2″ steel beam from a distance of 1 km.  The unit also successfully shot down a few drones 2 km away, and an 82mm steel ball. 

STAR WARS is here folks. I consider this rather impressive, and pretty darn close to “actualization”.  They are looking to build a 60kw, and a 100kw demonstrator over the next year or two (present system involved a 30kw and a 20kw laser).

But the truth is, while we may be debating the need for AR15’s in the public media sphere. I’ve argued that we have to be very careful to ensure that the 2nd Amendment remains a right to bear arms (swords, bows, knives, guns, and yes – even blasters)
