As a person whose eyesight is declining due to being
hit by a laser pointer, I would hate to see boys of
Scout age engage in such an activity. I don't need to
broach the 'shoot-to-kill* nature of the activity.
I was 47 when my son accidentally pointed his laser
pointer in my eye; within a couple of months, my
vision began to deteriorate. I'm still a long way away
from blindness. But, if a Scout gets hit when he's 30
years younger, I'd hate to think what his sight might
be by the time he gets to be my age.
