Exactly. Its a railgun that flings all the hardware that makes up a laser.
So it's a laser gun gun. It fires laser guns!
Ya know, I've always thought of this awesome weapon: The chaingun gun. A giant chaingun, very big, huge ammunition box. Instead of shells, it fires chainguns with the triggers taped down. So imagine a giang chaingun firing chainguns with triggers taped down at a rate of fire faster than an MG42. Awesome.
To take it even further, imagine an even GIANTER chaingun, that shoots chaingun chainguns! Or, and even GIANTER one that shoots chaingun chaingun chainguns! And so on. The battlefield is covered in bullets.
