Among all the tools and toys for self-defense, non-lethal and less-lethal guns are making some serious waves. Why?

Non-Lethal and Less-Lethal Defense Options: A Public Guide

Let’s decode some jargon. In the cop shows and military briefings, you’ll hear “non-lethal” and “less-lethal.” They sound like the same thing, but spoiler alert—they’re not.

  • Non-Lethal Weapons: These are the dream – weapons designed to minimize the risk of fatality and long term injury. They can still pack a wallop.
  • Less-lethal Weapons: These are your realists. Under the right conditions, they aren’t going to kill or seriously injure someone, but the potential is still there.

Types of Less-Lethal Technologies:

From zappers to blasters, the arsenal is broad:

  • Conducted Energy Devices (like Tasers): These give a shock to remember without a permanent goodbye.
  • Chemical Agents (like pepper spray): Good old fashion eye-stingers. Makes your skin feel like it’s on fire, and throws you straight into uncontrollable fits of wheezing and coughing.
  • Distraction Tools: Bright lights and big sounds to make the bad guys pause and say, “What the heck?”
  • Physical Restrainers: Nets and foams that say, “You shall not pass.”
  • Blunt Force: Rubber bullets and bean bags for when you need to say, “Back off” rather forcefully.
