high and sometimes it is not, and there are things to look for to give you clues about whether or not you are in serious
danger. The Restraining Order (which is what I suppose you mean by "steps through the Prosecuting Attorney" may be
helpful or it may be a red flag in front of a raging bull. You need some ways to assess which one it likely is.
And then of course all the common sense stuff needs to be done; dogs, alarms, changed traffic patterns, change where you sleep if possible, you can guess at it all.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
I'll bet there are more victums of crime than there are hurricane and tornado victums in the U.S.

02R1,,,,just understand that there are people who feel better about themselves to belittle others and then they feel superior. When it is all said and done, you will be alive and they may be in a pool of blood and pee.
The likely-hood of ever needing a gun to defend yourself is probably about as likely as getting hit by lightning. But I subscribe to the "better to have it and not need it" philosophy.
You won't ever convince the masses that carrying a gun is a good idea, stop trying. Use that energy for something useful, like shooting 100 rounds at the range!
No coworker should know you carry, probably not most friends.
I currently live in a so-so neighborhood, but I came from a hood where crack was sold next door, and Meth behind me. You heard people screaming and shouting at each other all the time and into the night. I was afraid to let my girls go outside and play after dark because you never knew what might happen. So when I carry a gun around my house and with me wherever legal, because I want to be prepared, I don't worry about what everyone else thinks. I know I will be able to protect "me & mine" if ever or whenever the situation arises.

I'll steal a line I read on another thread in this forum:
Q: "do you carry a gun with you all the time? Even when you sleep?"
A: (rhetorical) "How many times have you had sex this week?"
Real answer to both questions: None of your damn business.
Could also be looked at from the point that if your close enough to a person to discuss your intimate affairs then you may be close enough to discuss your carry habits. Neither should be discussed lightly with mere acquaintances.
I live in a good neighborhood, it's the visitors that I'm concerned with...

I'm guessing the people attending that college in California or the i-hop in Nevada weren't feeling paranoid that morning either.
I always carry when I'm out and about, and I have a Beretta PX4 .45 with a tactical light on it in the nightstand. We live in a very upscale mountain town that I feel very safe in, but "crazy" can happen anywhere at any time.
It all looks like paranoia until the criticizer becomes the victim I figure...
