A restraining order or protective order is an order used by a court to protect a person, business, company, establishment, or entity, and the general public, in a situation involving alleged domestic violence, harassment, stalking, or sexual assault. In the United States, every state has some form of domestic violence restraining order law, and many states also have specific restraining order laws for stalking and sexual assault.
Restraining and personal protection order laws vary from one jurisdiction to another but all establish who can file for an order, what protection or relief a person can get from such an order, and how the order will be enforced. The court will order the adverse party to refrain from certain actions and/or require compliance with certain provisions. Failure to comply is a violation of the order which can result in the arrest and prosecution of the offender. Violations in some jurisdictions may also constitute criminal or civil contempt of court.

    Sacrificial window for scope's objective lens.

    Does anyone know if a sacrificial window, or something like a UV filter for camera lenses, is available for rifle scopes? I'm mounting a Sig Tango 6 3-18x44 on a bullpup, and with proper eye relief the objective lens is just behind the muzzle brake, so I'd like to protect the lens. I've done...

    Recommendations for body armor for threat protection against pistol and .223

    assuming there is no civilian body armor that stops 308? Can anyone recommend a manufacture and preferable a design that provides groin and lateral/rib protection? Hopefully, there is a product that is reasonable for my 5'8" 160 pound frame at an athletic 70 years old? Thanks.

    Electronic Ear Protection Question

    I’ve been going back and forth between the Walker Razor XV (neck band with retractable ear buds) and the Silencer ear buds. Both seem to have advantages over each other. I’d prefer the cordless type but really worry about losing the bud out of an ear. If you’ve tried them please chime in!

    Other State  MA Supreme Ct: stun guns have 2A protection

    The Massachusetts Supreme Court overturned a state ban on the possession of stun guns. It grudgingly came to that conclusion in this case after being spanked by the US Supreme Court in a previous decision (Caetano) where it had ruled the ban was constitutional in part because stun guns didn't...
