Many times I have been approached by beggers, who have followed me after I have told them no and continued to ask for money. This has forced me to leave the area I was in. When being approached by two or more beggers at once, I have wondered if they where going to try to take money from me by force. I have had homeless people try to get into my personal car in parking lots with me still in it. The question I have, is when can a citeizen take a stand in self defense when being approached by a pandhandler? There needs to be laws that these people cannot approach you in any way.
