    How do the courts view lasers when used on a home defense gun. Can it be used against or for you.

    I've seen it used to imply that the shooter was obsessed with high-tech weaponry and wanted to enhance his lethality, but I've also found that when properly defended, that's an easy argument to destroy. I wouldn't worry about it, I'd just want to be able to articulate why I had it on the gun. I have a Crimson Trace LaserGrip on my backup J-frame, and feel confident that I can justify it's use in a courtroom, as I've done already for someone else.

    best,
