It is just a piece of paper

Nashville, Tennessee - Victim: Abuse Worsened After She Took Out Order Of Protection
News Flash: Restraining Orders and other court orders don't always work to stop violence.
A domestic violence victim warns that orders of protection may not prevent abuse.
No kidding? Then why is it that the Left is always saying they work just fine? Why do they maintain that women with abusive stalkers don't need to be able to defend themselves? They couldn't be callous and uncaring and interested more in controlling guns than protecting women, now could they? No, I would never think that.

But seriously, the police and the courts can only do so much. The police cannot get to you before the crime occurs, nor can they guard you 24 hours a day. So if the state cannot guarantee your safety, what should you do? The Left has a standard answer.
"Get away and get safe where nobody can get to you, and that means giving up everything very often," [Annette Fowler, a chaplain at a Nashville women's shelter] said.

Giving up everything is the hard part.
Run away. Give up everyone you know and everything. (You may not even be able to contact family from a shelter.) Somehow that doesn't sound too good to me.

Get a restraining order, certainly. But also get a firearm, some training, loads of ammo and a concealed carry permit. Self-defense is a human right.
