Eyeball - I do not understand the meaning of the sentence,

"you do not want to use lethal force with ammo designed for home defense"

What is wrong with this ammunition? Is home defense ammunition different in some way that makes you more at risk for suit?
I think he is talking about frangible ammo like the glazier safety slug and rat shot. The point of those is to not over penetrate through walls. The trouble is that something that won't penetrate a wall won't penetrate a bad guy either.
