He's talking about laser jammers. Radar jammers are illegal to have in all states and it is a felony and 25,000 dollar fine if you get caught with one.

Laser jammers are legal in most states, only a select few have made them illegal.

now i need to ask, why would Radar Jammers be Illegal, and not Laser Jammers?

Radar jammers are controlled by the FCC. It is illegal to broadcast a radio signal which interferes with other radio signals aka, radar jammers interefere with police radar which is illegal because of an FCC law. Laser jammers emit light, and you can emit all the light you want unless the state law specifically says laser jammers are illegal. Lasers are controlled by the FDA and they have no laws against using lasers.

There is no such thing as a working radar jammer, so the laws are stupid. That rocky mountain is all a waste of moey.

Yes there are working radar jammers, it's not very hard to jam radar...just very illegal.

Jamming an individual radar gun on only that frequency might be a bit difficult, but a blanket jamming by completely flooding the frequencies that police radar use would be relatively easy and would definitely mess with their devices.
