In some localities, TRO's are issued through a self-serve window. Women's advocacy groups teach how to fill out the paperwork. The forms are submitted through a window, and the applicant picks up the TRO at another window once the clerk has it printed up. No real standard of proof is required. The TRO provides no protection, if the police fail to respond.Originally Posted by Euclidean
Euc, I'm surprised that you think the State should be able to confiscate your weapons because your angry ex doesn't want you within 100 ft of her. If you abide by the TRO, why should your right to self-defense be compromised? If you do not abide by the TRO, and are intent on breaking the law, how will the TRO prevent you from using another weapon to commit your crime?
To answer the original question, my ideal would be Vermont carry. Although I comply with Virginia law, I do not consider it "acceptable", and continue to work against what I consider to be unconstitutional constraints on my human right to carry whatever means of self-defense I choose.
