Are a lot of burglaries out there happening by way of a knock on the door?

Knocking on a stranger's door shouldnt be something that could cause concern for bodily harm. Thats absurd and unjustifiable.
Package deliveries get a doorbell or knock sometimes.

If your friend doesnt want people knocking, he should very clearly state on a sign which hangs on the door that he does not want to be bothered and if someone knocks, then expect to be met with potential bodily harm.
That should go over real well for all parties involved.***
