A Man walks right through a restraining order and stabs his wife to death.
Restraining orders do prevent the subject from owning or buying firearms, which can be trusted about as far as the order for the subject to keep their distance…in this case the firearm restriction worked, but the protection order didn’t.
Is a victim of “Knife Death” any less dead than a victim of “Gun Death?”
Of course if you’re a victim of domestic violence, stalking, or threats first GET AWAY, second get a Restraining order, and third get a gun and carry it always!
Now I won’t advise anybody to carry a gun where it is illegal…but if my choice was to disarm with somebody who had made direct threats against me around, or carry illegally…well I’d have a choice to make.
