Except it's firing high velocity grenades, not bullets. It's also not laser guided, but laser ranged - the grenade simply explodes at a certain range, determined by the laser and any +/- you put on it (e.g. 200 feet to the wall, so 203 feet through the window to hit anyone in the room).

Keep wishing one day you will get very rich out of those wishses. :D Of course they will ban civilian ownership of this WMD.

WMD? If the GAU-8 Avenger isn't a WMD, then this surely isn't either.
