Default Rubber bullets

What is advantages/disadvantages of rubber bullets I see them occasionally and I think that's ridiculous and what would be the main use for rubber bullets I assume self defense or were they designed for self defense training

I've heard of police using rubber bullets as a form of Less-Lethal riot control. I haven't ever heard or seen any use for civilians.

I wouldn't try it. Seems to me that it would just piss the bear off.

They have also repeatedly proven to be a lethal device.

They are primarily for panty waist libtards who don't want to actually hurt a dangerous two or four legged critter that will kill you. Libtard politicians mandate it for crowd control instead of actually killing a murderous crowd. When you use military forces to do a Law Enforcement function, you have to go counter to a normal military mission and NOT kill.

Rubber bullets and buckshot are LESS lethal, not LESS THAN lethal. They are still potentially lethal.
