    Why is it said less-lethal rather than non-lethal?

    Less lethal implies is lethal but less lethal than a more lethal weapon. But if I am right non-lethal is non-lethal if used properly and maybe lethal if it is employed without taking safety cautions. A car is neither a weapon nor a lethal one but it could be employed as a lethal weapon. That doesn’t mean it is a lethal weapon. I guess that’s the case with non-lethal weapons. They are non-lethal though they could be lethal in some cases, as if you use a Taser to hit the head of a man till he is dead. That doesn’t mean it is a lethal weapon.

    Sorry if I am out of my lane but I think there is a bit of controversy when talking about non-lethal weapons calling them less-lethal.
