"In the future, gun aficionados or collectors will need official permits to buy or exchange their hardware and police can search homes without warning for ‘particularly dangerous weapons,' – such as the lethal 50 BMG, a favourite toy of one shooting club in the Bernese Oberland. This long-range sniper's rifle with laser-scope can knock out an armoured personnel carrier from a distance of one kilometre.

BWAHAHAHAHA! What ridiculous hyperbole from the anti-gun nutcases.

Can anyone explain to me, optically, how this could possibly work? Laser light travels in a straight line. Bullets don't. Also, even with optics, I don't think one is going to see a laser dot 1,000 feet away unless the laser itself is powerful enough to be used as a deliberately-targeted blinding weapon.
