But imagine that Captain Kirk’s Phaser was available. It worked faster, more reliably, and with more shots than a gun. Most rational people would choose the more reliable weapon that doesn’t kill.

That’s a pretty tall order. But I have a pretty good idea how we get there (I have the luck of seeing what’s happening in R&D and charting the course).

I may not have phrased my question well. I meant the hypothetical situation where we create the more effective non-lethal weapon.

if the tech exists to create the more attractive non-lethal weapon it'll also exist to create a lethal version. no? have there been any studies done that would suggest the average person would choose a non-lethal option if an equal lethal option were available?
