Restraining Order Fails to Restrain

Man fatally shoots his wife, police say : Corpus Christi Local | Caller-Times | Another example of the "How dare you live without me" attitude.

A woman filed for divorce, got a restraining order, and then got shot in the head.

Her ex-husband then shot himself, but wasn't so efficient. He is still alive.

If you think you need a restraining order, then you need a plan for your personal safety. A plan does not guarantee your personal safety, but without a plan, you will be helpless in an emergency.

A gun may not have saved this woman - there are no guarantees in this life. But there was nothing aside from personal self-defense of some type that was going to save her. Self-defense is a human right, and in Texas it is your legal right.
