There is a recent epidemic of women using victimization for control. It ranges from false reports of fear and abuse to rape accusations. In your case, jyoverseas24, I would say that your ex falls into that class. The women who do this not only can ruin a man’s reputation and his life, they also make things harder for the real victims. I’m sorry you had to go through that, but am glad you knew it was coming and were able to take a little preemptive action.
When the threat is real and the authorities don’t act it makes the front page. When the threat is false it doesn’t even make the news.

I’d like to clear up a couple of things. First, in Arizona we do not have gun registration. Second, when a person files for an order of protection or similar order, that person goes before a judge and states why they feel the need for the order. (This would be where the neighbor could say he was threatened and that the vet had guns.) Third, when an order of protection or similar order is issued there is a hearing, after the order is served, to determine the facts and validity of the claims by the petitioner. Prior to that hearing the Court is liable for any harm that comes to the neighbor. The police generally try to serve these orders as soon as possible after they are issued. Think abused wife and kids with angry, mean ex-husband. The circumstances are clearly different, but the law applies the same way. In the case of the woman and children, if they ended up shot after they went to court and were granted protection would you back up the judge for not taking the ex’s guns until the hearing? Unfortunately, this is one law that can be manipulated by less than honest people.
That being said, personally. I have only had one bad experience with a judge and she was in Glendale’s court. I did not have that many cases in Glendale so I don’t have a lot to compare with in that city.
The rules are almost universal when it comes to these "Orders of Protection" They are a load of bull**it! I had an ex while I was in Afghanistan over 7000 miles away file for one because she was "Scared" of me when it all reality it was a tactic used to take my children away and force me to fight for them! They were all based on lies, which were proven! But still, I had to fight for over 18 months because there was no "Hearing" for me to tell my side, the judge was a hardcore leftie that just wanted to try and take my guns away. When I arrived in the US, I was met outside my own house by a local cop I knew well who stated that it was B.S. and that he had to take my guns! People need to learn how to read fine print, there is typically a clause that states "within 24 or 48 hours" they must be surrendered. This was more than enough time to get my guns and get them out of there to a trusted friends house! Needless to say, I have spent over 20 thousand dollars to clear my name, and there is not going to be a punishment towards this woman for lying under oath! it has been proven that over 80% of protection orders are filed under false pretenses! We in the US need to stop this corruption where a woman's word can ruin your life! I had the order completely expunged, got my guns back from my friend, and just for good measure, I loaded up on more guns and enough ammo that next time, I will not give them up without a physical fight! Protect yourselves, fight till the last moment!

I’m having the same problem and have read a lot of posts from other users, too. It’s reached the point that some have stopped reading The Blaze because it takes forever to load and then freezes their computer. I recommend sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to make them aware of the problem. I did, but just 1 person isn’t enough to require a fix.

We know most of this. The problem is no one is taking action. It’s been talked to death and it’s still happening. Why?
 March 25, 2015 at 5:31pm
I agree. The Blaze is the only site that freezes my tablet. I had the same problem when I was using a laptop. I want to read the stories/articles, but it takes forever to load and then freezes. There is way too much junk running on this site. It takes away from the content and diminishes the importance of the articles.

Most of my family are liberals and used to argue with me over my conservative stand. I got them to stop when we were having a “discussion” about abortion. When I asked if anyone was in favor of the death penalty, none were. My reply ended all political conversations. I said, “So it’s only ok to murder someone if they’re your own child, right?”

I am livid! I don’t understand why the republicans won’t call the democrat’s bluff. Is this some secret tradition or what?!?! They obviously didn’t pay attention to their constituents. It’s really bad that we have to wait 2 more years to vote again. They apparently didn’t take us seriously in the last election.

Good lesson until the dad started laughing. Did you hear the kid at the end? The boy said “You got me good” several times but at the end he said “first I got you, then you got me.” As if he played a joke on his dad by lying to him.

Or for just $19.99 plus $20.00 processing and handling you can get a gadget for peeling eggs. Whoopie!
You're right though. And, for another forty in S&H you get a second one free.

I resent your idea that a person has to “look” handicapped to use the provided parking. I look just fine when you see me walk into a place. It’s when I”m leaving after walking around that I “look” handicapped, thanks to the severe arthritis in my hips. My health is none of your business and you have no right to judge me or anyone else.
Thank goodness it’s not up to you to decide who’s handicapped and who isn’t.

I honestly believe that the American people haven’t done anything because 1. we have been taught to do things the right way, through elections and 2. there has been no actual leader for a rebellion. Had there been a brave and credible leader, honest Americans would have followed.

If they can find a lawyer to push it through the court fast, have her file for emancipation. Then she can make her own decisions and DCF is out of the picture. Just an idea, not advice.
you mean filed in the same court system that decided she has no right to her own life? By the time she got it through, she would already have been filled with the poison. the Damage is done, they have effectively declared this to be a tyranny, and not a free nation

I think that’s the idea, but you’re thinking is backwards from those who are pulling the strings behind the scenes.

That last line really made me so mad! Mental Illness? How about a mayor, a president, an idiot named Sharpton working very hard to start a war in their own country before the new senators and representatives take office? I wasn’t into conspiracy theories until recently. It sure looks more and more like this is all part of someone’s plan.
I hope I’m just a little crazy rather than being right.
YOU got it! That is exactly what is being done. They want a civil war so they can call martial law.. It is going to only GET WORSE from here on out. The FOCUS of all in this country better stick to wat is happening and be able to do something about it or were going to wake up one day and wish u had. Get right with JESUS, and then focus on protecting your family!

Next headline? Martial Law declared in New York. Mayor gives statement saying the Governor is over-reacting and that protester rights are being violated. In other news, all NYPD stay home to protect their families.

I hope some others will join Ted Cruz. Standing alone is incredibly brave and quite likely to do little to stop the illegal commands of obama. If the last election was any indication, anyone looking to keep their job in 2016 would do well to follow Mr. Cruz’s example and stand with him.
It's all a show, to control you "Fools"! ....sad indeed!!!! :(
Considering taht is what they were voted in for!!

It’s tragic that so many lives have been lost lately. Some were “justified” and some were either atrocious mistakes or worse, horrible actions by professionals who should know better. What they all have in common is Al Sharpton. I’m not religious, but if I were to wonder what the devil would do it would be inserting himself in every death, regardless of the facts, and encourage violence and destruction at every opportunity. I am encouraged by the fact that people who are affected by these deaths are able to see Sharpton’s agenda and know that their loss and their search for justice is not part of that agenda.

Thank you for the encouragement. It did help.

. If obama gives the illegal immigrants amnesty it won’t ever get undone.
 November 7, 2014 at 10:39pm
What ever happened to the immigration laws we have????? Hey! GOP! We don’t want compromise! We don’t want work arounds! We want the border closed. Obviously obama doesn’t get it. This was a message to HIM to stop breaking the law and ignoring the American people. It should also serve as a message to the newly elected. If you don’t listen to your constituents your career will be short lived.
