    Gun dissuades insistent Mass. snow shoveler

    The elderly couple told him to leave, but he just banged on their door harder.

    Massachusetts. I wonder what it's like living in such a un-free State. :huh:

    Can I show my gun the next time a homeless guy asks for money after washing my windshield with newspaper and water? I'm licensed.

    Car= leave whenever you want
    Home= you should be able to feel safe and not be bothered

    So F- your window washer anaology Eugene...they told him to leave, he demanded money and stayed. He should have been charged with tresspassing.

    The guy can get government handouts for just asking . . .
    He thought the same should apply to private citizens . . .

    Guess I should've put a smiley on there. I was just joking about being annoyed with the window washers...

    #2: "Can I show my gun the next time a homeless guy asks for money after washing my windshield with newspaper and water? I'm licensed."

    Has this actually happened to you or is it just a hypothetical question?
    The recent conviction of Michael Dunn in Florida was a pretty clear demonstration that one can not just just empty the magazine at people for being annoying (not that I would wish to), so pepper spray is probably the way to convince bums and winos not to touch my car. Wearing my crabby face when out and about tends to reduce unwanted contact with people I don't want to converse with, and I have no qualms about being rude to panhandlers, squeegee men, and other assorted parasites. I'm not kidding about finding them annoying.

    Is that really starting to happen in Portland now? Anyway elderly woman should have a peephole and yelled through the door" NO THANKS" first then "GO AWAY I'M CALLING POLICE" all the time holding the weapon. Brandishing it shouldn't be the fist instinct. If he persisted before she got a chance to call the police maybe yell that she's armed? Every situation is different though and it should be her right to answer the door armed as well. When I get that old I might do the same thing!

    Only happened once in Seattle and it was only because I was stuck behind another car. Washed my windshield with a wet newspaper and asked for money. Actually made my windshield dirtier. lol

    Only been approached maybe two times in the last 10 years here in Portland. Just swerved around them and drove away...

    Ugh, back when I used to work in downtown LA this was a frequent occurrence. Having to step over a fresh and steaming crap to get into my building was not an unusual happening. I remember at one point I was taking one of my coworkers back to her car, and we got accosted by some crazy begger who had a cup on the end of a stick who started screaming obscenities and poking me with his stick when I said "no thanks". Yea, at that point mr blasty made a cameo, licensed or not. I wasn't about to put up with that kinda BS.

    These people belong somewhere they will be appreciated, like santa monica.
