    Nope. If the other guy gets one against you (in retaliation -- it happens), then you may have difficulties purchasing except FTF. Isn't there a question about being under the provisions of a restraining order?

    Temp restraining orders are not, unless asked by the person it was issued for, recorded by any law enforcement agency. The order and proof it was served must be given to an officer, unless it is recorded by that agency, before the LEO can act upon it.

    Permanent orders are recorded but the person it is issued against has the ability to contest it in court before it is issued.

    If your have restraining order against someone, you can get an emergency CPL, if you don't already have one. This to me indicates that you are more than welcome in the eyes of the law to carry your guns.

    As for the hot ass, it he keeps up, warn him (lawfully, or course) and if the problem continues, citizens' arrest him (make sure you follow the law,) and I'm sure you know the rest.

    Isn't the restriction on owning a gun with a restraining order against you only for situations of domestic dispute?

    Of course there isn't a restriction on yourrights if you are the one requiring protection...
    Be prepared. Be very prepared.

    Your answer is on the back of the form. It says something about whether there was a finding by a judge and violence. I don't remember the details, butthere's more to it than just a restraining or no-contact order.

    I don't believe that you having a restraining order against another person will affect your ability to carry. It will restrict theirs. The only way I could see it affecting your ability is if they file one against you.
