What's the point of a laser firing pin?

SaysUncle doesn't see one. Personally, I think it's something that would enable "smart" gun designs. Replace traditional mechanical firing pins with lasers, and you've eliminated the need to mechanically lock the action to disable the firearm. You just don't power the laser. This also addresses concerns about battery power ("Your laser already runs on a battery anyway, why are you worried?") and provides at least a talking point for reliability concerns as well.

None of these things are really good things.
