    Don't you believe it. There are just too many lawyers out there. They'll think of something!

    I'd take a phaser set on STUN in a minute. Killing isn't any fun, any way you slice it, and not having to deal with the law suits, criminal charges, and so on would be a huge benefit.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Folks, that would usher in the "new Age of the Republic", which would likely be far less republican, in any sense.

    Why tolerate those pesky gun-owning individualists? If they get too loud, zap'em & fine them. People are much easier to manage if they conform. Bad guys, well we all know we can't control them, so we'll zap the obvious ones and right off a few "citizens" each year to "feeding."

    Less-than-lethal: the oppressors' scepter. Goodies like that make regulating the populace less bloody, which in turn removes concerns of "human rights."

    Thanks, I'll pass.

    You may not have an option, Rob. I harbor the same fears as you regarding the breakthrough that allows totally safe use of "stun" technology - it may indeed usher in some serious new abuses. The thing is, though, that we can't un-invent lethal technologies, so there will always be a means to resist.

    Hypothetically, sure, that would be great. Realistically it's an impossibility, so the whole question is moot.

    Rob has a really good point. I was only looking at it from the stopping effectiveness perspective. If there were a theoretical round that could stop a guy say 90% of the time no matter where on their person they were shot, that'd be a very powerful tool. OTOH, as someone else pointed out it's fictional, so I'm re-loading my mags with 147gr gold-dots as we speak.

    Exactly. ^^
