Yeah but when it's crunch time instincts take over and you'll reach for whichever closest. Also The extra weight isn't distributed over your body but rather on your waist, making it more uncomfortable for you to move and a better chance of you to drop something

Mistakes could be made, human error is always a factor, but that doesn't always make it an argument. Overall, it could reduce causality, and if need be, they could leave the lethal one closer. All I'm saying is that it could and very well would reduce deaths, with little to no backlash.

I doubt it and feel that it would be a waste of time and money since police are taught to only use their gun if they feel their life is in danger, and since that's the case they'll always reach for the one with the live ammo. On the other hand since rubber bullets are non lethal we'll probably get more reports of officers firing rubber bullets at suspects committing less violent crimes, especially fleeing suspects.

Tasers that shoot those 2 things? Theyre slow and you only have 1 shot so dont miss. Stun guns (or hand tasers as ppl like to call them) are generally more effective but dont bring it to a gun fight.

If you have to chase down a perp the extra weight would slow you down. Also if you're in a situation where you have to quickly draw you may pull your lethal sidearm instead of your non lethal one and vice versa

I'm assuming you'd have to put some practice into remembering which is which. Maybe on the same day they practice the firearms in the first place, they also practice drawing the right one. Also, If 10 pounds makes the difference then I would assume that in most cases that wouldn't work out for the cop anyway. Overall, he would most likely still lose the chase.

drugs, adrenaline, sheer willpower, three things that a readily available to many people that, if police used rubber bullets, would lead to many officers being killed.
#130 - below (12/25/2014) [-]
how would metal bullets be any more effective then? they will only have a significant effect on the attacker after the adrenaline has worn off unless it hits a part of the central nervous system (unlikely in a high stress situation).

Okay, before I start a whole other argument, what's your thought on tasers? As far as I know, properly used, they can take a person down who's using all three. (Rubber bullets in this case would be used for threats that a taser can't reach.

Yah. But it's high school. it's already ridiculously easy. And that's the point of multiple choice, to give you a hint; if I make a mistake on a test, I want it to be something that I meant to do(Such as forget a negative), not because I hit 7 on my calculator accidentally.

Wouldn't multiple choice tests just make the test ridiculously easy?

Depending on the test. With math, usually the answers on based on different things you could do wrong; Negatives, forgetting a step, etc. Same goes for most others. I think English Final could be more difficult than that, but I'd be surprised if on average anymore at least 2 finals aren't multiple choice.
