ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Senator Chuck Schumer wants to make sure long range green laser pointers don’t end up in the wrong hands.

There have been several reported incidents where people used the lasers dangerously at airports to try and blind pilots.

Schumer says it’s happened over 150 times, even right here in Albany. That’s why he’s on the FDA to ban the sale of them to the general public.

According to research, the green lasers are 20-30 times brighter than other colored ones and can travel for miles.
