    What do you do when?

    what does everyone do when the ever so lovely Mormons or Johavah's show up on your door step? I swear no matter what, the mormon's won't take no as an answer from me when I'm polite with them. I tell them politely im not interested, at this point in time I have made up my decisions.

    I'm not polite...If I am feeling talkative I will yell about them disturbing my day, if I'm not, I will shut the door...seems to get the point across.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I just start cleaning my AR, with my USP40 sitting on the table in front of me. I normally see them well before they get to my house because I stay out in the the yard. I get my cleaning supplies out and clean my AR right there in the yard.

    "I am sorry. I believe that Jesus Christ was the son of God, came to die for our sins, died on the cross and was resurrected. You don't. We are done. Thank you, but enjoy your time in Hell."

    That usually gets rid of them.

    I just don't answer the door and let my dog bark at 'em. He's not a particularly mean dog...or very smart...but he's got a mean bark.

    Not a religious person at all. I don't bother with organized religion in a typical gathering, I sure ain't gonna deal with it door-to-door.

    I just say "not interested " and close the door.

    Once the JW's showed up here at the house, my wife answered the door, and they went right into their spiel, and wanted to give her some of their Watchtowers. My wife told them to wait just a minute, and she went back in our house, got some of our churches (not JW) printed material and went back outside. She told them I'll take your material if you'll take mine.....we can trade.
    She said they nearly ran backwards, trying to keep the "offending" material from even touching them. They refused to take it, apparently word spread, and they've never been back here.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I never answer the door without a gun. But I don't have a great means of looking out my door to see who it is and as we do have friends who stop over from time to time not answering the door could mean missing an opportunity to fellowship with good friends.

    I answer the door with my gun in my hand behind the door or door-frame so that if it's forced open the first thing the intruder gets is a muzzle up the nose.

    Last time they came over they wanted to come in and talk to me. I said "No."

    They wanted to give me pamphlets and I said, "No, thank you."

    They invited me to one of their meetings, I said, "Thank you," and shut the door.

    No need to be rude, just politely get rid of them as fast as possible.

    We don't really have problems with JW since we moved to Arizona, but we get a couple of visits per year from the Mormons. Since three of the six houses on our culdesac are Mormons it is often also a neighbor. They have come to accept that we have no interest in "changing over" but continue to want to visit. They are good people, in general, and good neighbors. Many I have run into don't have a problem with gun ownership. They are generally very conservative, as a group.
