Quote:The LRAD first came to prominence over the last decade, as it was found to be a non-lethal cure all for riotous crowd control, and also pirate defense.

Point an LRAD at someone who finds whatever you're doing disagreeable, fire the sucker up, and suddenly they are blasted with up to 153 decibels of noise.

And how loud is 153 decibels? Well, lets put it this way: a standard-issue firework, if there is such a thing, exploding three feet away from you is slightly quieter. A Boeing 747 taking off right next to your head is much quieter.

Permanent hearing loss begins at 130 decibels.

Lawyers have to be drooling at the thought of this and the lawsuits it will bring. If that happened to me, I'd be lucky to keep the car on the road.

I doubt there have ever been laws made addressing this, however, one would think common sense would factor into this equation in some way. bored.gif
