I guess a restraining order is good in the way that it's official that there is a problem... but I know two people that it did not help at all. If she threatened you in writing I would report it to the police, if not then I would get a gun and a carry permit, and hope that she isn't unstable enough to really do anything.
#22, restraining orders are typically a few hundred feet. I can hit a target at 500 yards with a weapon that is certainly not a sniper rifle. She doesn't need to be that close to get a decent shot in. Anyway, OP, either move and change your contact info, or get your own concealed carry license and start packing heat.
27 - What the hell are you shooting that can hit 500yds that is not a rifle. A concealed carry only allows certain handguns, none with an extended barrel. We do competition shooting in my family, we've never seen anyone hit that far with a handgun. Maybe 100 yards if they are excellent...
Where I live, if you can prove she has any mental condition or a prescription for any mental disorder, the CCW gets revoked immediately (had a similar situation - ex-gf- on Lexapro and Effexor. Just showed the 'scripts to the local Sheriff, they revoked her permit within a few hours after confirming).
Jesus fucking Christ! Surprisingly enough, they do perform background checks on people buying firearms. Also, mass shootings almost entirely occur in "gun free zones" where the shooter knows he'll receive no resistance from armed civilians. If you're going to jump on the Gun Control bandwagon, at least have a valid argument.
If you live by a gun then you did buy a gun. If that's the case get a bigger one :)
