A male stranger rings your doorbell in the middle of the night. Do you answer the door?
I wouldnt answer... Just shoot
notice how Mississippi answered yes heh heh heh
Haha my dads glock 17 by his side :)
Hey look someone wants to kill you or your family, and you are 100% sure of that, we should all feel free to put them to sleep forever.
You go mama bear. We need more loaded ladies.
Trust, but verify. And if they're trying to harm you, or your family, it's only right and proper to pop a cap in their ass.
Yes, with my loaded gun at my side.
I answered no to both, because im either asleep (work night) or playing my vidya games with my friends.
Nope. My husband would. With a gun.
Well I guess that means I'm screwed if I am ever in mortal danger.
Honestly it depends entirely on where I am at the moment and if the person looks like they have a weapon or are on drugs.
We live out in the country and a few nights ago we had a snowstorm with some serious winds... Had someone come knocking at our door, we'd more than likely open it to help but you betcha one of us would have a loaded gun, just in case.
normally i would say no, but i had the chain pulled and opened the door to 3 males at 4am a few nights ago cuz they were banging on my door. they had the wrong apt. they apologized and left. if i could have slept through it i wouldnt have opened it.
Welcome to America where we are so messed up we cannot trust anyone and we shoot people for the hell of it
Good that u didn't
I stand at the door to the side and rack a round in the chamber of my shotgun and politely tell them there is nothing in here that they want. Between that sound and my dog trying to get outside to tear them up they quickly leave.
i hope you wouldnt really do that. im one of those people that will answer the door with a loaded gun.
Nice try. I'm flattered.
Sorry kids, that's how the babble rolls.
No. I always am that male stranger.
That's what I do, freak people out showing up at their doors wearing a ski mask.
Please don't call people liars. You don't know everyone here, and some have explained their yes answers. I answered yes, but explained I wouldn't open the door unless it was clearly and unequivocally safe. It could actually be dangerous to NOT at least let on that someone is home.
I'd just ask them what they want through my intercom.
Are you crazy?
@loadmaster not diesel, but it was a manual. It was pretty sad looking after! And liability only, of course. Ha
@Doopy kinda my point.
That's got to be freaky to the person on the other side.
An example was the recent Sandy Hook Shooting. The police responded wonderfully, but because they can't teleport, it was too late to stop the shooting.
With my 357 mag by my side, I'd answer.
There was a really tall man in a black hoodie standing at the back door. He wasn't looking at me at the moment but he could definitely see me. I ran to the kitchen while calling 911 and got a huge knife. Never would I have answered the door.
I'm a sixteen year old girl. About a month and a half ago, I was home alone after dark but not really that late. I was in our back living room on twitter, just chilling. All the lights were off. I started hearing a knocking sound and at first thought it was my rabbit. I looked up at the back door &
Hell no!!! Somebody knocks on my door in the middle of the night that is not the police, then I'm not home.
By protect themselves against crime, I meant not putting themselves in situations where they could be victims of crimes.
It is also a statistic that men fear crime less, so they are more likely to put themselves into situations that could result in a crime happening to them.
Women and the elderly are more afraid of crime, so they protect themselves from crime.
Better to be prepared then be a statistic. My family will always be protected. Never had to use my gun and pray I never do but rather be be prepared then not. 911 won't be there then first few minutes it just you.
It's sickening how many of you immediately and proudly declare how many and what kind of lethal weapons you would have ready. You're far less likely to be assaulted by a stranger than by family, friend, or acquaintance. If you're so freakin' afraid of other humans, just go live alone on an island.
Dawl, statistics show that men are the recipients of violent crime on a larger scale than women are. When someone is assaulted, it is more likely to be a man than a woman. Statistically, men have more reason to be afraid than women do.
Because answering the door to a male is insane at night? His car might have broke down, something terrible might have happened and he needs help.
Compassion for our fellow human beings. As a consequence, we have people hoarding guns and shooting up schools and other crazy $hit. Love thy neighbor people
I'd answer it with a loaded pistol on my side. It would most likely be a legit emergency because most crooks aren't ballsy to knock on your door in the middle of the night. That's partly what's wrong with society is that we no longer look out for each other and have a deep mistrust and lack of
Yup with 1 in the chamber
Middle of the night or middle of the day I don't answer the door for someone I don't know or I am not expecting. I also have a weapon (not guns) in every room in my apartment. (I'm a bit paranoid about being attacked.)
Hell no. I am a petite female, 5'3" 115 lbs. No way will I open that door. Even with my boyfriend over, who is a Lieutenant in the marine corps - I still wouldn't let him open the door.
Chuck Norris yeah!!! He will break my door down!!!!
Answer the door does not necessarily mean open the door.
Yeah, 20% of you are liars!
"Who can it be knocking at my door? Go away! Don't come round here no more."
This reminds me of Ace Ventura when he knocks on someone's door and a shot gun slides out the peep hole. :)
