Restraining orders...

...would be more effective if they were written on kevlar and taped to your chest.

A restraining order should be treated as a get out of jail free card.

If the asshole shows his face, shoot him.

The order will derail any attempts to prosecute you for committing self-defense. Other than that, it is useless.

Kris....

Within reason, after all, once you have your order in pocket you can't go making your way into their life and surprise them.

Or if you accidentally run into them at Starbucks. You can't just shoot them, ya gotta give the subject an avenue of escape.

Bullcrap.

If the perp has made death threats, and a judge has issued a restraining order, than shooting the perp on sight meets the "reasonable and prudent person" test anywhere except CA or some eastern US crap-hole.

Shout "don't shoot me" good and loud, and then put a bullet in his face.

I suppose that the best restraining orders are made by Smith & Wesson or their competitors.
