    I'm sure this will come as quite the surprise to some anti-gun folks out there.

    All the Best,

    ...I always thought a restraining order was "Put that guy in chains".

    Whatever color aghast is.
    Just the American justice system at work.
    What did you expect?

    Make sure you spend as much time as possible
    on the internet arguing with strangers about politics.

    The good stuff used to be red, now all they have at aghast stations is the clear crap that's so non-flammable, you can fill fire extinguishers with it.

    Restraining orders are about as useless as a vertical ejection seat on a helicopter.

    With that being said, a lady friend of mine was having problems with her ex. She got a restraining order, and a .38 snubby. I helped her with getting used to the .38, and where to aim for maximum effect. Needless to say, her ex now wheels himself arond in a wheelchair, wears a colostomy bag, and had his junk pretty well damaged by bullets. I was so happy she took care of the problem the way she did.

    The theory that a "big bang" from a handgun, along with a perpetrator receiving a gunshot wound, is the best way to end violent personal or property crimes.

    Whatever adjective or verb comes to mind, I am...NotSo.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    I find the twitter post by the news person amusing: "Orange County Sheriffs Deputies are here off Brown Road in Hurdle Mills area. Not sure what they are investigating. But they are focusing on a property with chickens and horses. Caution tape is up. Will keep you posted." It's the typical "something is going on and we want to be the first to say something even though we don't know anything", but the chickens and horses part is an unusual addition.

    You'd think that by six years old, everybody understood the principle of "Rock, Paper, Scissors". Maybe it works differently in North Carolina?
