How to be Safe in your home - It's what you don't do that is Dangerous
We have all heard that you don't let your mail or newspapers build up when your on vacation, but what is the worst thing not to do when you are home? Believe it or not the worst thing to do is to not answer the door.
Now listen, this is very important, I'm not saying to open the door to a strager, I am saying you need to answer it loudly, let them know you are home.
Most break-ins accurr during the day when no one is home. The most common type of break is the repeated knock on the door and if there is no answer they just kick in the door. Let me repeat that: if there is no answer they kick in the door. So if you just ignor them, because you just don't want to be bothered or maybe you are scared; be ware, this is very Dangerous. Now you are face to face with some pretty bold people.
Always answer with a loud voice, don't open the door, but let them know you are home. If they were planning on breaking in they will ask for someone you don't know and pretend to have the wrong house. Let them know they really have the wrong house, tell them you don't know that person, you don't know them and if you fell bold enough tell them you have a gun, In fact in todays times that not a bad idea either.
