Ex parte orders of any kind are just simply unconstitutional.
I perhaps disagree with you. Stop focusing on the things that don't work. Focus on things that do work, like arming every American. Trying to stop a nut case ahead of time is extremely fruitless. Having a armed population who can "instantly" act upon such nut case will yield much better fruit.

Guns in the hands of Americans is no more dangerous than drivers behind the wheel of a car. Sure, there will be some Darwin cases, some ND's, and perhaps some other real accidents, but the # dead will be way less.

You cannot stop it, but you can limit it.
