Local background checks for gun buyers:

Steele County Sheriff Lon Thiele is not so sure that it is a duplication, noting that there are some things — a restraining order in a pending domestic violence case, for instance — that may not show up on the federal check. For that reason, Sheriff Thiele says,“Leave it with local law enforcement.”

We agree.
Men don't need a gun to kill their wives or kids. Restraining orders from Judges won't restrain men (more likely it will anger them more so than before). If cops or Judges do anything harmful to men who are accused of "domestic" violence, it will only make them more angry and more likely to take their anger out on family members.

The antigun crusader is not an expert on crime or safety.

The 2nd amendment prohibits govt from regulating guns. If you disagree it's because you have been brainwashed by the antigun newsmedia.

Police don't usually respond to restraining order violations anyway.

The best tactic for victims is to either arm themselves (hopefully they won't have to undergo multiple background checks) or to have friends or family members to arm themselves.
