How many people have been killed by drones in the United States. Take a guess, yeah it's zero so far... that doesn't mean they're not potential dangerous. If we take the story on it's face, the individual was an adult 19 years old. He didn't have a consumer grade laser, it was in fact a commercial grade which implies it was fairly powerful. I'm pretty sure if you talk to any pilot he's going to tell you that having a powerful laser come into the cockpit during the landing sequence creates an extremely unsafe condition. So yeah not much else to add except duh.
