Tabletop X-ray Laser

From the LATimes:  --After more than half a century of research, the world's first
tabletop X-ray laser has been created an international team  of physicists, a development that promises to bring new  understanding to wide areas of chemistry and biology. --
And the weapons long dreamed of by sci fi  authors.  X -ray lasers have the potential to be the " blasters" of early sci fi, but only of they can be made small enough...

How about a lone infantryman using a single shot from a handgun to take out a main battle tank? Interesting thought...

And does the Second Amendment allow individuals to own what could justifiably be called a super weapon?
