Front Porch On You're Own Property
You should be OK.
The Police might get called but, you should be able to do what you want on your own property if you are not threatening.
Chris...Interesting Pittsburgh Note:
There is a street in East Liberty that has a big old house owned by a Muslim group. There is a guy that sits gaurding the front porch (right in front of the front door) with a shotgun across his lap.
I used to see him just sitting there all the time.
The East Lib. Police drive by that house all the time.
It must be OK for him to sit there...I guess.
I have no idea what exactly he is guarding against.
