    Re: correct sentences

    They're OK, though some might not like them. The first could be ambigious and adding 'this/that is' before the laser gun might make things clearer.

    In fact it sounds to me as if it is a nuclear bomb and a laser gun at the same time.

    And in the second as if my sister is my aunt as well.
