Duane 'Dog' Chapman pro gun, but against lethal ammunition | Fox News

I’m not against the gun. I’m against the bullet, the lead bullet, because I’ve used non-lethal weapons for 30 years. I have had to shoot many fugitives and never killed anyone. You have the right to bear arms, which means you can protect yourself, but you don’t have the right to kill people for no reason. The lead, the bullet itself, is ridiculous.

We have made weapons that can drop an elephant in one second. I’m showing cops, homeowners, good people, you don’t have to kill anyone to get them down so you can control them. You can use a non lethal bullet, a rubber bullet and drop anybody. They’re going down, call 911, tell them if they move you’ll shoot them again, so that’s what I’m against.

I really do like the Dog. However here is my issue with this statement, If you don't intend to use lethal force DO NOT use a gun. I know cops, prison guards, and even bounty hunters have been very successful with non-lethal ammunition. However, they need to take charge of the situation and have received special training to accomplish that task. Non-Lethal ammunition can be very deadly, its still a projectile being propelled at a high rate of speed by gunpowder. They shouldn't be used in a self-defense scenario. I look at it like shooting to wound somebody. My opinion as a typical CHL carrier, use lead bullets with the intent to stop the threat even if that means deadly force or don't carry a gun.

I disagree with alot of that, esp. stopping someone as effectively with rubber bullets, but watching the show, he sure has alot of non-lethal weapons I've never seen. Some are obviously designed to appeal to the scary black plastic rifle crowd but if there are smaller, concealable or purse-sized versions, I'd be interested in learning more.

Right now, I always carry pepper spray. If there's something more effective I can carry when I cant carry my firearm, I'm interested.

I also carry pepper spray. I keep a can near my front door and in my glove box. I'm not anti non-lethal weapons, just non-lethal ammunition. I would only point a gun at a person for one reason.

They use radio communications, disparity of force, surprise and ambush tactics and they go into the danger, knowing their target and they use sub-lethal methods en masse. To make that statement about regular LAC is absurd, since normally an individual can't roll on a predator like that. They have to be prepared to deal with an unknown and possibly lethal threat coming at -themselves-.

The guy is just a couple fries short of a happy meal.

Edit to addL Agree with Weeg. (Portions of the) show is staged. They're not going to allow real lethality on a TV show. They'd never get insured.

All of this is a perfect example of why less-lethal (not non-lethal) ammunition works for him, but wouldn't be appropriate in many self defense scenarios.

He uses non-lethal force to (supposedly) capture fugitives and other bad guys. He is taking the fight to them and has the element of surprise.

The 2A was meant as a means for the free people of this country to fight a tyrannical government. Those non-lethal weapons are all but useless for this scenario.

If he wants to get rid of bullets, he doesn't really support the 2nd Amendment.

I like dogs too but I realize that they are of limited intelligence and don't have opposable thumbs, so I don't put much stock in their rationality or cognitive abilities. Plus they have no pockets so they can't pick up stuff and keep it, therefore they will never rule the world...

One the problems is the media and the spokesmen that we use. People keep talking about less-than-lethal or non-lethal, but those terms are just wrong, the correct term is "less lethal", meaning that it is less-lethal than shooting someone with standard defensive ammo. Tasers, rubber bullets, even hands on, can all kill, it is just less likely than shooting someone.

I liked it despite the blatant plagiarism of a pre-famous Jerry Seinfeld...

I take "Dog" about as seriously as I do Barney or Big Bird.

Hmmm. Either you're a tome of comedic knowledge or your life's so boring you worry about your yard.

Let's see if you get that one!
