  •  It could slow down the ex's and stalkers (0+ / 0-)

    Because they now know they might get shot and/or killed.

    Most of them are cowards anyway, so this could be good for the women. They don't have to do anything for the ex/stalker to be threatened.

      If someone were hiding from a stalker ex, this just gave them their address.

      As a woman whose had a restraining order due to domestic violence, this is a terrible idea and possibly even dangerous.

      •  My symapthies about the stalker ex (0+ / 0-)

        Your experience may be that your ex is not going to back off when threatened, but in my experience I have seen quite a few back off when they thought they might actually get hurt.

        I would like to see some kind of stats on that. Most of the abusers I have known were cowards, who were only going to dominate those they thought they could get away with dominating.

    •  No it won't. It would ensure that body armor is (0+ / 0-)

      used most likely.

      Being stalked, even by unarmed people is scary and intrusive and that feeling of security never returns.

      If a person will go to the trouble to stalk you, then doubtful there is much that will deter them. Stalking all by itself is a desperately ill act, that genuinely leads to other unlawful behaviors and violations.
