until you say otherwise, or put a sign up.
them's the laws all across the USA.
Apparently the laws are different where I live, then.
In my city, people are not allowed to go door to door soliciting stuff, unless they have a permit. I haven't even seen a Girl Scout selling cookies around here. Anyone, even just someone asking for directions, who doesn't immediately leave my property when told to do so is guilty of trespass, and will be arrested if they're dumb enough to hang around until the cops arrive. If I so choose, I can even have someone arrested for standing too long on the public sidewalk, peering at my home. Here, that behavior is known as "loitering."
And yes ... I do
have signs up.
