Legalities of Sci-Fi/future weapons in the US

I didn't know where to put this, but I figured it should be a fun thread.

With the viability of new technologies, I see a time in my life where a Sci-Fi weapon will be commercially viable. Railgun, Gauss cannon, laser gun, something along these lines.

What I'm curious of is, if I walked into a store and bought a high powered rail gun that could launch a 7.62mm projectile at 2800 FPS, would it be legal? What about a laser gun firing bursts of laser that could cut through wood? Metal?

What do you guys think? One day will we have a form to fill out for ownership of a laser weapon? Or walk into a hardware store and buy one? Outlawed for civilians? Never gonna happen?
