I live out in the country down a gravel road. We might have someone we don't know knock on our door twice a year. I never answer the door but just holler " who is it? " If they don't go away I just rack the Winchester.
I disagree with this attitude completely. I too live in the country. My door has been been knocked on late at night on 3 occasions in 24 years. One deffarious as I discribed. Twice with real emergencies. One was a beautiful mid 20s young lady with a mind of a 7 year old. The girl had been taken out in farm country by a family “friend” and had been assaulted. She sat in the fetal position on my porch swing for the 60 minutes it took for the State Trooper to arrive. At least she was safe. I am very cautious and carefully, but I won’t turn anyone in need away.

One night about 2:00 AM I heard a frantic knock on my front door. I found a lady holding an infant crying and claiming to be lost. I told her I would call the Police and she requested I call her friend instead. I called him and he couldn’t repeat the name she had given me for him or the correct last name she had given me for herself. However, I gave him directions to my house. I can see fully to the South of my door but I have a blind spot to the North. I turned off all the inside lights and turned on all exterior lights. I then went to the window that would provide a view of the North side of the house. I opened the blind and surprise there were two guys hiding and ready to jump me. I knocked on the window pain with the barrel of the 12 ga. I was holding. The two men ran like scared Jack Rabbits leaving the woman to her own devices. I told her to get lost and then called and woke up my neighbors to tell them of the scam. I live in farm county 45 to 60 minutes from LE help so I thought a call would be more helpful. I also called the Sheriff who was aware of the scam.
Considering aggravated robbery is a felony, and citizens have the powers of arrest on felonies, would it have been possible to call law enforcement and hold her at gunpoint?... Sure you wouldn't get the other two, but at least catching her would give LEOs some real leads.

Seems a pity that they will just go down the road and do the same thing to someone else. Eventually, they will murder someone.
