    •  There are lots of new, non-lethal weapons... (6+ / 0-)

      ...ruuber bullets and stun grenades come top-of-mind. Many newer weapons are being tested, either in the lab or in the field, by our own government. Lasers, audio-related weapons, numerous others. Look upthread for more detail on this. Or, simply do a search (I'd suggest putting in the term, "Wired.com", as part of the criteria for a search of that type). I'm sure you'll find it enlightening.
