Some may be armed in response to late-night visit

Editor,

I appreciate the difficult job of a police officer; my son is one.  

However, that being said, if someone is banging on my door in the middle of the night and I can't see an official police car out front, then I'm just not going to open that door empty handed. If I own a baseball bat, it's in the basement somewhere, so what I will have is a shotgun or pistol. 

If the police are going to hide their car from my view, then what do they expect? Just because someone is yelling that they are the police is not enough, any bad guy can do that. What do you say, "Ogden PD?" 

Sure, I want police protection, but I am the first line of defense in my home.
