Petition The UK to ban the online sale and importation of handheld laser pens.
To prohibit retailers from selling handheld laser pens of any size and strength. To prohibit the importation of laser pens of any strength and size into the UK. To seize any imported laser pens at customs.
Handheld laser pens have been used to attack UK air ambulance, police and MOD helicopters. This poses a great risk to the air crew as it could blind them and more seriously disorientate the pilot risking the safety of the helicopter and air crew. As these imported pens grow stronger and more readily available they are more dangerous. My husband is an air ambulance Critical Care Paramedic and I am petrified he will be killed needlessly and our daughters will never see their father again.
