Another Failed Restraining Order

We often here anti-gun activists argue that should depend on the police to keep us safe.  They also say if we have a specific security concern we should get a restraining order. 

So how, then, do they respond to incidents like this?  A woman was murdered by her estranged husband despite the fact that she had a restraining order.  He later killed himself, of course. 

The antis need to explain why they believe that someone willing to murder another person and commit suicide would be deterred by a piece of paper?  Isn’t a law against murder, in essence, a restraining order issued by the legislative branch rather than the judiciary?
