"No win situation"?

Survival when somebody is trying to kill you is a win. Some wins are better than others, but it sure beats the crap out of losing, especially when you are playing for keeps like that.

It surely would have dissuaded the ex and stopped the bullets also.

It is a piece of paper.

Its value is lost on those willing to break the law by shooting a persons without just cause.

This case highlights the impotence of both our police force and courts.

A very good reason to be willing and able to protect and defend ourselves.
Take a gander at the times listed in the article: the cops were on scene ...... heard (some of) the shots .... and that helped...... how, exactly?

When you need help, the police are only minutes away ...... or they might be right outside ......and their help may still minutes away..... I can't say as I blame them, as their job is not to rush in and risk their lives to protect you: You are the only one who can or will protect you. Police officers are there to uphold the law and arrest folk that break it .....

When seconds count.

Are we becoming the British?

"I say there old chap. shooting me is illegal."

"Do you have a license for that gun?"

In a whole lot more words.

Attorneys love to speak and write volumes.
They get paid by the word.

You are obviously unfamiliar with Lawdog ...... definitely not a Lawyer.

Wrong arm of the Law ....... Sherriff's Deputy in "East Bugscuffle", TX ...... and an excellent Wordsmith. Very entertaining reading.......

I especially like "The Snake", "The Rise and Fall of the Nigerian Space Program", "The Infamous Pink Gorilla Suit" , and the one about The Major, House Lizard Commando.....

jimbob,

Ahhhhh, yes. And here's one for Christmas: http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=231131

Errr, make that two for Christmas. This is the "brutal assassination of Santa Claus" referenced in the article above. http://thefiringline.com/forums/show...threadid=36213

As far as the Justice of the Peace is concerned. Elections are held for removing those who make stupid decisions.

A restraining order against a husband is pro forma in divorce cases. Little thought is given to the wife as a threat.

The whole thing is a tragic epsode.

This varies by state.
Some states have no elected judicial posts.
Remember that Attorney Generals and Sheriffs are executive branch posts
