The police are there to preserve order and investigate crime, pretty much in that order. Protection is, and always has been, the individual's responsibility. The very existence of a restraining order is proof of that. If the cops had the job of protecting each of us, no one would need a restraining order.
That's why I said it's all the more reason to excercise your 2nd amendment rights. Now the court strengthened the argument.
YOUR life is in YOUR hands, you have a right to protect it.
Restraining orders are granted by courts in order to give law enforcement personnel the ability to create the right of a person not to be stalked and killed by another person. Since our country is based on freedom, a would-be killer would be allowed to stalk his prey and the police would be left to have to wait until the murder actually takes place.
