NO THE BEST THING TO DO IS STAY IN THE HOUSE, SAY NOTHING, AND WAIT . WALK TO YOUR ALREADY LOADED, CALIFORNIA LEGAL FIREARM AND IF SOMEONE BREAKS INTO YOUR HOME, THREATENS YOU OR YOUR FAMILYS SAFTY, MAKES YOU FEAR FOR YOUR LIFE, TAKE CAREFUL AIM AND END THE FELONY.

Hahaha! Good one N R A 4EVER! Love it!

It is important though to start or join a Neighborhood Watch program. And call into the PPD ANY and ALL suspicous persons or activities.

Don't open your door - you can speak to someone through the window.

Even if someone didn't answer their door, who's to say they weren't at home. I never answer my door when a stranger is knocking. Try breaking into my house and see what happens.

I agree with not answering the door for strangers. That's why security screen doors help. California has laws for shooting stupid stupid people that breaks into houses. You should check with a attorney or Massad Ayoob about written and case laws in your county. That's why my 12 gauge the first 2 rounds are bean bags followed by 00buck. So in a court of law you can tell the judge and jury I tried less lethal but he kept on coming because if the bad guy doesn't have a weapon you can be in BIG BIG TROUBLE!!!!

@ccwc

Starting a neighborhood watch program is a waste of time. Numerous studies and research has indicated they have no effect on crime within a given neighborhood. Just call the police if you see something suspicious.
