Yes, the LCP does have a long, harder trigger pull, too, but I don't interpret that as a problem - it is a designed attribute in consideration for the type of carry gun it represents. That characteristic fits well in that it is a small pocket pistol with no safety utilizing a double action trigger. I wouldn't want a small pistol with a single action, light trigger with no safety in my pocket.
I agree it poses some challenge to shoot, and it certainly isn't a range or target pistol, but it fulfills its designed role pretty well.
As far as the laser topic goes, the Crimson Trace Laserguard is grip activated and, in my opinion, has a place in an environment in which a shot may be taken up close when ones ability to acquire proper sight picture is compromised. It shouldn't be used as a substitute for proper aiming technique, however.
