i dont know...
but you could use particles for this, or even a single sprite, since the laser always start at the gun and ends at the midpoint of your screen. the sprite should be a line with a width of (say) 5 pixels (/texels) and be blured about 5x. now interpret the color as alpha and set the laser''s color with glColor3f.
