One idea for nonlethal weaponry that we haven't really touched on is the use of foams and other sticky type materials to coat an assailant. I think these weapons would work fairly well against an aggressor who had only melee weapons, but I do not know that it would be all that efficacious against an attacker with a gun in hand. Seems to me that even if you could coat the person and gun before they could shoot, it would be likely they could still pull the trigger and that a bullet would tear right through the stuff. Just thought I ought to include it for completeness's sake.
