Had a great email from a listener last week relating to a story from the Cleveland News-Herald.
The email brings up some great points and finishes with a great question.
How do you answer the door when there is an unexpected knock?
As aware as possible
- My office is oriented so that I can see out the front windows of my home. Â This helps to keep me appraised of who isÂ approachingÂ via my driveway.
- If I’m not in my office, I make my way to a window that affords me a view of the front door and the driveway.
- I also take note of whats going on in the house. Â Who is where?
With my rear covered
- Our home is kept shut up pretty tight as it is, but when something unexpected happens, I take a moment to double check things like making sure the back door is locked.
- Common tactic of home invaders is to distract at the front door and attack through the rear.
- When possible with help.
- This comes as no surprise to my regular listeners. Â I wear my gun from the time I wake to the time I sleep. Â This makes it easy to have my gun with me all the time.
- Often its in my hand. Â I’m a big fan of the grip ready position.
With a negative attitude
- I begin with the idea of NO, NO, NO in my head. Â It is easy to change my tune to yes than to go the other way from a permissive attitude to the idea of NO.
- You better have ID, which matches your vehicle, and you better be willing for me to confirm if you are dropping in unannounced.
Don’t hesitate to call the police. Â If you aren’t in danger, use the non emergency number. Â Check things out. Â And if anything seems out of place make sure you let law enforcement know.
