#1 The lasers some rioters are using are true lasers, powerful enough that gu ou cannot hold your hand in front of them for more than about a second. This is according to Ted Cruz, I believe.

#2  "You are creating the b-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during his campaign.

A bit late mayor. The Orange Man already has more than enough footage of the urban mayhem.

#3 Mr. Wheeler said the use of tear gas to disperse the crowd was the right call.

Nah, shotguns. Great at real riot control and you can station collection teams at the emergency rooms. The evidence is planted right there in them.

#7 Guess the Polling Aggregates are in.

Skid, that was my first thought but do not have the technical knowledge of the lasers vs. this protection to be certain of safety.

Gun Free Zone has also explored this issue Here.

#8 Lasers are easy to trace back to the source.
So, when a bright green laser is shined in an officer’s face, puts a bullet through the rioter with the laser pointer.
Watch the threat of blinding laser weapons vanish as soon as Antifa learns that law enforcement doesn’t fuck around with people who try to blind them.

#9 That's a good read, KS.
I was thinking transitional lenses with ratings for gamma and Xrays would be pretty effective.
