The whole problem is that while there is some remote possibility of
injury, it isn't dangerous enough to be concerned about?

"Might be used?"  The kitchen knives have always been right out on the
counter available for use.  There are no locks on the knobs on the gas
stove.  The kids had bicycles, and got driver's licenses, right on

I've got a challenge for you:  how many documented cases of eye damage
from laser pointers have there ever been?  How does that number
compare with deaths from choking on food in the period since laser
pointers were invented?

Seriously, you're worried about a complete non-issue.
