    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    Not answer the door.

    Ask what he wants through the doorbell camera.


    Then shoot him.

    Same thing I do when the trick or treaters knock on my door, don't answer it.

    I am going to tell him without opening the door that I am calling the police who will arrive quickly. They will be able to assist him. After that it is up to him.

    Late night?? Anyone I'm opening up for would have called or texted me ahead of time. Mas Ayoob has some ideas:

    Ask him what he wants through the closed door then call the Sheriff.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    No appointment....no nothing from us. Stand there as long as you like. Leave whatever you came to deliver. I'll get it tomorrow.

    What exactly do you consider "late night"? Some of you geezers probably go to bed at 7:00!

    Kidding aside, if it's before ehh..... 9:00 ish I'll answer the door. After that, what everyone else said.

    "disheveled hair" is a hair style now, especially for the younger croud so that means nothing.

    This is America. I have the right to go places. You have the right to stay home. You have the right to be upset about me going places. I have the right to not care.

    "Shotgun Joe" Biden says to just shoot a shotgun through the door. BTW, a guy did that used Biden's statement as a defense. It didn't work. Maybe when he's president it will be legal.

    Use discretion...follow my gut feeling.

    For me, one size does not fit all in this type situation.
