Restraining Order - 0; Armed Citizen - 1

A Lexington, Ky., woman on Tuesday proved that while restraining orders often won’t save your life, rights protected by the Second Amendment will.

According to local police, the woman was being assaulted by her ex-boyfriend, who was under a restraining order to not get near her. She shot her attacker multiple times in self-defense, putting an end to the assault.

The attacker, 40-year-old William J. Reed, has been charged with fourth-degree assault, domestic violence and violating a domestic violence order.
