The dangerous thing about lasers is the range, and their literal 'speed of light' speed and tracking ability. Trying to hit a helicopter or distant vehicle in motion with a firearm is insanely difficult. Lasers make such matters simple. Obviously they don't kill or cause any significant damage at such a range, but there are times when temporarily dazzling someone is enough to cause an accident. I've often worried about some guy with a beam expander lasing freeways from a long distance away trying to cause crashes.
