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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 &

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.

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

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.

This reminds me of Ace Ventura when he knocks on someone's door and a shot gun slides out the peep hole. :)
