No, it was actually very lethal.  A separate DC power supply
discharges a high voltage energy cap into the base (ground) of the
sec coil which makes the sec sparks bang loud and they can deliver
lethal energy if they should contact something grounded.

This way employed after they solved the kickback problem.
