What the proponents of SB 585 want to happen is really a fantasy. The events that led up to the creation of this bill becoming legislation proves the ineffectiveness of restraining orders and unenforceable laws in the first place. A piece of paper is just that.
The only one responsible for you is you. The sooner people realize that the better off they will be.

If you want protection go buy a gun yourself do not expect the police to protect you.

If you want real change in cases like this get rid of the waiting period for firearms and allow any law-abiding citizen to carry concealed.

On a related note:
Last week's Supreme Court decision on Castle Rock v. Gonzales case (http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/cgi-bin/getcase.pl?court=US&navby=case&vol=000&invol=04-278) didn't get much press, but in this decision SC once again confirmed that not only the police does not have an obligation to protect an individual (that's a given now), they don't have an obligation to enforce a court issued restraining order.

I was under the impression in CA that upon being served with a TRO for domestic violence (quite common in divorce cases, I hear) that friearms already have to be removed. Is this law seeking to make thia permament. I thought now that firearms could be returned later.

I'm sorry to hear that that woman's son was killed, but once she filed for a TRO, she should assume that the ex would be served and if really in danger, move now.
