If you don’t like what they are selling, a simple “no, thank you” will do.
I have always told them I really did not want to talk about it, but I never had any desire to shoot them.
Ya think? That hasn’t been my experience with these people. (But I’ve never fired on them.)
They can be pretty hard to get away from but not dangerously so. Certainly not worth shooting at them.
Mormons probably been banging on the door that morning.
Obama’s Dept. of Homeland Security has said fervent religious people are domestic terrorists. Is this what the federal DHS wants - shooting guns at religious people and their cars?
I wonder if this shooter showed up at his church on Sunday?
We need the photo “Get off my lawn.”
I’m guessing his judgement was a bit clouded at that point.

Religious nuts can drive you nuts, and free people are entitled to defend thenselves.
Jehovah’s Witnesses are why God created dogs.
LOL! I answered the door yesterday with my Beretta 92 in it’s holster when some Comcast salesperson rang the door.
(Of course, I ALWAYS have a firearm on me while in my home, so this isn’t uncommon)
