Next On Gun Control Agenda: Non-Lethal Bullets
I suppose non-lethal bullets would be beneficial under certain circumstances, such as on a plane or in crowds, but if someone is breaking in my home, I'm not shooting to wound. I'm shooting to kill.
Executives with a Boise-based company are poised to begin marketing a new type of ammunition specifically for law enforcement teams and designed to avoid causing serious or fatal injuries to their targets and bystanders.
The technology was created at Integrity Ballistics LLC, a company that has spent more than 10 developing and testing a round that resembles a shotgun shell. The round fires a synthetic ball that flattens upon impact and is intended to stun or subdue the target and the plan is to make it available only to law enforcement. (Source)
I don't believe a non-lethal bullet will remain only for law enforcement. It will just be a matter of time, if the gun control lobby fails at banning gun ownership, they will press to force the use of non-lethal bullets.
