Would it not be the same for the laser?
You fire a three second laser pulse and you have that 3 second length of laser beam continuing thru space until it hits something? Granted after a few light years it may be dissipated?

Due to diffraction the beam will spread out over long distances. Within relatively short astronomical distances the intensity will be below eye safe levels.

True but a laser pulse would get out of the neighborhood a lot faster.
