Well, if you want a laser (or beam) you'll need a good power source. So what we should do is invest into a good power source, then we can zap and kill people.
Just wanna point that out.
Created by a man named Nikola Tesla (some of you may have heard of him), the "Death Ray" was a directed energy weapon, said to be able to shoot at a line of sight effective range of up to 300 miles, and able to destroy entire battalions of enemy troops and hardware.
What was the power source? A giant Tesla Coil (Tesla's Wardenclyffe coil), using wireless energy transmission to get the power from the coil to the ray (energy output from the tower at Wardenclyffe was thought to be nearing the 1GW range).
The only real difference between these new beam weapons and the Tesla Death Ray is that the new weapons are using chemically charged beams, where the Death Ray operated off of a directed, high intensity electrical arc, which essentially superheated and liquified the air around it, creating plasma.

A missile with a mirror on it is an alright idea but i think that if the laser could shoot down a missile, itll probaly be able to burn through a mirror.
