An excellent visual on why restraining orders don’t work.
A video posted Monday by Everytown for Gun Safety could easily have been produced by gun rights advocates if the scenario it exposes is thought through.
A frightened woman calls 911 as her angry “ex” pounds on her door and bellows in rage.
“Yes,” she responds to the operator’s query if she has a restraining order.
He kicks in the door, grabs the couple’s son, and when she ineffectually tries to stop the much larger male, he turns, pulls a handgun, and the viewer hears a gunshot as the screen fades to black.
