    Man Poses as Apartment maintenance man to rob tenant

    Neighbors On Edge After Daytime Robbery - Local News - Lexington, KY - msnbc.com



    Not far from where I live. Man said he was an apartment maintenance man to gain access to apartment. Could have been much worse. Just another reason NOT to answer the door, or at least be ARMED when you answer it.

    Yep - I don't ever answer the door unarmed. If it is a customer I'm expecting or family, I keep it concealed. But if it is a door-to-door salesman or a Jehova's Witness or something I answer while open-carrying. Amazing how it changes people's incentive to sell me something.

    - It may be a deterrent to some, but it may be an invitation to others. Unless you're home a majority of the time, knowing that a firearm is in the house may be just the incentive that someone may need to come back later when you are not home. Just some food for thought.

    It's not a hard equation to figure out. Don't answer the door without a gun.

    I've never been a person who is so anti-social that I refuse to answer the door. Although that is an option.

    I noticed one of the Neighbours responses was they haven't had any problems in 5 years but if any more crime happened there that they would have to move,What an Idiot,crime can happen anywhere,you cannot move everytime crime happens,or your gonna run outta places to live

    Would you return to a home wondering if the gun-toting inhabitant was there or not, in the off chance that you might be able to steal the gun??
