    Man allegedly points gun at girl selling cookies door-to-door

    A Temecula man who allegedly pointed a gun at a girl who knocked on his door to sell cookies on Sunday has been arrested, authorities said.
    Because we have to stand our ground against Girl Scouts selling cookies.

    I agree, it sounds absurd, but then who would think that a criminal would use a child to gain entry to a home? Who would think a criminal would use deceit to rob someone of their possessions?

    Personally, I don't answer the door beyond a certain hour in the day and I don't ever answer the door unless I know who's knocking - partly because I hate people selling or collecting door to door.

    I get it. But you should answer the door, or at least acknowledge you're at home in some way. Burglars are well-known to knock first.

    My dog practically flies through the window beside the door anytime someone knocks or rings the bell, so no burglars are coming in with her on the warpath, even though she's harmless.

    I guess I would have to say that stupidity has a cost involved.

    Yea, my Chihuahuas let me know when someone is around. Although I always have a gun within reach when answering my door, I would have looked out my window. Seeing it was a girl scout selling cookies, I would have politely opened the door unarmed and told her no thank you.

    Re: Man allegedly points gun at girl selling cookies door-to-door

    Any time I'm not EXPECTING company and the doorbell rings, I answer it with one of two things in my hand.... a firearm or a broadsword. I do my best to conceal it behind my hip/the door, but I'm sure there are times when some part of it is visible. I'm sorry, but my safety is much more important than someone who shows up unanounced getting a little shaken up by it. Thankfully I'm in a secured condo building now, so there are rarely people ringing our bell.
