#57: I was gonna ask how you came to have such a callous disregard for human life, but then I checked your profile and saw that you're 13 and therefore have no perspective on anything. OP's psycho ex is psycho and needs to be dealt with, but trying to kill somebody is never an appropriate response. Your attitude is naive, dangerous, and completely absurd. Best of luck with puberty!
Warning shots are a bad idea. They're illegal, not to mention dangerous. You could hurt or kill an innocent bystander with a falling bullet or ricochet. Never fire your weapon unless you mean to hit a specific target. You're actually much more likely to go to jail for firing a warning shot than for shooting and killing someone. In Florida it's illegal just to brandish your weapon. Guns are extremely dangerous, and should not be treated casually. Their purpose is to kill, not to intimidate. That being said, considering how violent OP's ex is, I think it would actually be a good idea for OP to carry a gun, with the proper licensing and training, of course. It could save her life. And if her ex is the type of guy who attacks strangers because he's suffering from the delusion of having property rights to another human being, then I'm less concerned about persevering his life, and more concerned about the safety of those around him.
I also don't have a disregard for human life, I myself have dealt with a couple of stalkers myself over social media (not exactly the same as OPs situation) I feel very violated if someone like OPs boyfriend was clinging onto me, if not a shot, then pepper spray.
You need to carry pepper spray. Along with a restraining order, but that's only a piece of paper.
