Why You MUST Get A CCW Permit With Your Restraining Order

If you’re like many people in society today, then you believe that a restraining order can somehow magically help protect you from aggression from people with evil intent.

And, you can kind of see the logic in their thinking. After all, doesn’t a restraining order mean that the law has started to intervene in the situation and that law enforcement now have an obligation to protect you from the person who you have a restraining order against?

Unfortunately, no. That isn’t what that means at all.

According to the Supreme Court, law enforcement doesn’t have any obligation to protect you. An article at tribunist.com gives the details:

According to a 2005 ruling from the SCOTUS, the government doesn’t even have a duty to protect you if you’ve obtained a court issued restraining order. From a New York Times article on that ruling:

The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.

In other words, it isn’t the police’s problem if you get attacked by someone violating a restraining order. It’s your problem. You have to be able to defend yourself. You have to be the one who can protect yourself until the police can get there and arrest that person.

And what is one of the best ways to defend yourself against harm? Carrying a firearm on your person. Yes, that means that you will want to have your CCW permit and a legally obtained firearm, and you will want to have training on how to use it along with regular range time to keep your skills sharp.

But that’s better than being dead.

So, even if you have a restraining order, realize that protecting yourself is your problem. Police are under no obligation to keep you safe.

  1. Capital idea! I think all women should have concealed carry permits!
    A restraining order, from a court, is reason enough to warrant a permit!
    In addition, women should also be properly trained in at least one deadly martial art! And the more, the better, I say!
    NO ONE deserves to be a statistic! We are human beings, NOT mere numbers on a piece of paper!

  2. Anyone who believes that a piece of paper, aka a restraining order will actually protect against a person or persons with evil intent needs a lot more than a CCW, as it is sometimes know.

  3. If you are second fastest you are dead. I mean DEAD. So get permit and do not ever forget what I said. I was taught that back in 1942 at basic training.

  4. Then why do our tax dollars pay their salary. to protect and serve? I am all about defending myself by all means necessary. I would hope all women take to time to learn how to defend themselves and be self-reliant. I personally will never be a victim again. I almost always carry!

  5. A piece of paper won’t stop a bullet or other physical threat; but an armed citizen with adequate training CAN stop an attacker!

  6. We, as human beings are endowed with certain rights given by fact of life to protect ourselves from violent individuals. The right to carry a gun is given by God not granted by the state. If you carry concealed and you let anyone know it;you have made a grave error. Concealed carry is intended to not allow anyone to know that you are carrying, but then you are also supposed to keep out of situations where you lose control of yourself (drunkenness) or other foolishness) I do not ask to be allowed to carry. I carry whenever I want to or need to and I accept the responsibility for my actions If you are not grown up yet; leave your guns at home , don’t take your guns to town with or without a CCW.

  7. I’M A DISABLED VETERAN AND I BELIEVE IN THE 2ND AMENDMENT AND CAPITLE PUNISHMENT.
    I BELIEVE IN WOMEN AND GIRL’S , ALSO
    LADY’S PROTECTING THEIR SELF’S FROM
    RAPE’ST AND CRIMANEL’S .
    I AM A MALE AND I WAS ADUCTED BY AMAN AT THE AGE OF ABOUT 13TH ON A CLAREMORE PAPER ROUTE IN 1963 .
    I BELIEVE THAT WOMEN AND LADY’S ALSO SCHOOL TEACHERS SHOULD HAVE A RIGHT TO
    BEAR ARMS WITH THE CORRECT TRAINING .
    IN JESUS NAME I PRAY AMEN
    THE MALE OR FEMALE TEACHER WITH TRAINING COULD STOP ANY ONE WITH A HAND
    GUN OR A RIFLE . IF THEIR TOLD TO PUT THE WEAPON DOWN THEN THEY WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO STOP THEM ..
