Ex-boyfriends who don’t like to admit to the “ex” part can be a problem. In this case it was mostly a problem for himself. Suspected Home Invader Shot, Killed in Pascagoula | WKRG

Time and again it has been shown that domestic violence restraining orders are not particularly effective. Are people finally realizing that? Families say restraining orders fail to protect domestic violence victims | 6abc.com
Probably not. People are rallying to pass another law. I hope it helps, but I have my doubts.
The article opens with the story of a gruesome murder of a woman at the hands of her abusive, ex-boyfriend.
“She would sleep with a pipe in her bed and a knife because she felt if he came up she might have a fighting chance,” Kathie Ehly said.
Of course she wasn’t killed in bed, but in her driveway. In both locations she would have been better served with a real weapon. Then I would be writing something on the order of “Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight.” But guns are bad. We need more laws that won’t make anymore difference than the old laws.
They were a relationship. It ended. But he wasn’t willing to leave it there. Man shot to death | The Lawton Constitution
Young-Dever said she was awakened with Stamper standing over her with a handgun pointed to her head and he made threats to kill her. She said she used a gun kept under pillow to defend herself. She said she doesn’t know how he gained entry to the house but that he didn’t have a key and wasn’t supposed to be there.
Cops found him “unresponsive” when they got there. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
The investigation continues.
So how would you respond to someone pointing a gun at you in the middle of the night? I would really like the gun-control groups to tell me how the hell this could have been better.

He charged her, and she responded appropriately. UPDATE: Man shot in Capitol Hill to be arrested – Capitol Hill Times
Seattle Police report a man hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his leg Monday morning will be arrested, after investigators determined the woman who shot him was acting in self-defense.
This appears to be a domestic violence issue, because “how dare you life without me” is still a thing in some people’s minds.
It didn’t work out for this guy, whatever he was thinking.
So how would you respond to an attack (or at least being “charged”) by an ex?
She left him. He was upset and went to threaten her (because he “loved her?). Woman apparently acted in self-defense in fatal shooting
She left him and went to stay with a friend. That friend was armed.
Sheriff Robert Jackson told The Denver Post the homeowner was housing a former girlfriend of 53-year-old Tony Alonzo Ferrara, who was barred from the area by a restraining order.
Ferrara, wielding a realistic-looking BB gun, was shot by the homeowner as he threatened her while trying to contact his ex-girlfriend Oct. 3. He died at the scene.
He thought he could intimidate a couple of women. He thought wrong.

He went back and violated the same protection order, and committed assault, and may have shot out a glass door. $90,000 cash bond set for man shot by Oxford homeowner after alleged assault
The sheriff’s office said Kahler entered the residence without permission to do so, went into the basement and confronted the protected party. Authorities said Kahler then began breaking things and screaming for his belongings.
The protected party went upstairs to show Kahler where his possessions were and he hit the woman across the face, police said. Another woman in the residence attempted to intervene and Kahler pushed her against a dishwasher and kicked the woman while she was on the ground, the complaints state.
After this fine-upstanding example of manhood beat up 2 women, he was ejected from the residence by the homeowner. At that point the glass door shattered. Since the homeowner thought he heard a gunshot, he grabbed his shotgun.
The homeowner then grabbed a shotgun and confronted Kahler, the sheriff’s office said. When Kahler allegedly made an “aggressive move” toward the homeowner, the homeowner shot the man in the leg with bird shot, authorities said.
Some of this is still under investigation, but after he got out of the hospital, he was hauled back to jail. If convicted of everything he is charged with, be may be in that jail for 20 years.

He couldn’t take it that his marriage was over. So he became a murdering bastard. (Makes me wonder why the marriage fell apart.)
Predictably, neighbors were shocked. No one described him as quiet, but one neighbor did say he was “nice.”
Another neighbour said: “They were a lovely family I’m honestly shocked.”
No word on what firearm was used, which would be interesting given that handguns are illegal in the UK.
