I know some stuff

In America? Don't think so. I have only seen it for sale in Venezuela and most states of the USA. But, shotguns are for sale in the supermarkets there too.

I mean ofcourse that the ammo is illegal wherever a shotgun is illegal. The less than lethal ammo is often illegal even though shotguns and lethal ammo are legal. It's how it is.

To shoot a non lethal round from a flare gun just use a flare.

You specified non lethal, not non combustible. The French idiot shooting himself in the head on YouTube proved it's non lethal.
