When I was in the Army in Germany, twice a year we did NATO guard of nukes... Other than the qualifying range, it was the only time we were given live rounds... During one of those deployments, protesters were expected, and the orders that came down were that if we had to shoot, we were to shoot to disable... I'm sitting here chuckling as I remember our Chief of Smoke's (I was in an Artillery unit) interpretation of those orders... He told us " I'm pretty sure if you hit them between the eyes, they will be disabled"...
