Well why is a barrel shroud more dangerous than a wooden rifle stock or fore end that partially encloses the barrel to prevent burning your hands? Almost EVERY freakin long gun has some form of partially encased barrel for a front hand hold.
Barrel shrouds are typically ventilated that results in the barrel being less likely to overheat under rapid fire. All else equal you could provide longer sustained fire with a weapon equipped with a barrel shroud over a weapon with an enclosed wooden fore end.
