If I am defending my home the decision of lethal has already been decided by the invaders. I had no input and my hand has already been moved for me.

This! So much this! I have zero interest in this article or video or whatever it is because Roleplaypete has already nailed it.

Why would anyone use less than lethal on a home invader that is more likely than not armed with a lethal device. The only device that should be used to defend a home is 100% lethal or nothing at all.

I'm not an expert on these things which is why I was asking

In the places where it is illegal to use lethal force, what do you think would be the best move?

also depends on when you respond to the intrusion

Many places that dont use stand your ground require you to attempt to flee or essentially be cornered with a gun to your face before you can defend yourself with any amount of force. However I am no lawyer and would suggest talking to one about specifics in your area. In a country where a burglar can injure themselves while stealing from you and then sue you and win we may have a overly complicated and out of touch legal system.

Never depend on a baseball bat for home/self defense. They're not designed on that and they require you to swing them in a wide arc. That makes them useless in hallways, doorways, and if you're impaired in some way.

Get a shot gun and load it with bean bags, rocks salt, or bird shot. Have buck shot shells ready to load.

If you can't have a shotgun get a cross bow or a high pressure air gun.

thanks for the tips, I agree this sounds good

what use cases do you think non-lethal is appropriate over lethal weapons?

For instance, some places criminalize lethal force even in defense - might that be a good place to use non-lethal weapons?

Or if the criminal just seems drunk or something and not posing the most lethal threat?

Or maybe to try to scare off a mob which otherwise doesn't have a personal interest in you, they just happen to be in your neighborhood?

I am a bit ignorant on these topics, I've seen a lot of people just say to shoot to kill intruders but I wouldn't like to do that unless absolutely necessary

If you are going to weild anything gun shaped, it should be a real gun. If you draw anything gun shaped, it is brandishing and if you point it, it's a death threat. Doesn't matter if it's a squirt gun if someone retard thinks it's a real gun.

Best lethal self defense weapon for home security: GM6 Lynx.

Also, what are the best use-cases of non-lethal weapons?

You want a laugh so you use them on your friends.

Also, more people are murdered from bats/clubs then rifles. I wouldn't have included those as "Non-lethal" in this list.

Didn't see 12ga rock salt on that list?

Because rock salt shells actually work well vs most of the stuff on this list.
