There are numerous options in terms of non-lethal weapons: handheld lasers
that blind, tasers, etc.. Not to mention handgun rounds like shotshell, or
thin copper walls that have very minimal penetration.

To a free society, those options are preferred to what amounts to
strip-searching people who have done nothing wrong. Your solution puts the
onus on everyone. My solution focuses on the perpetrators.
