“Don’t fight from your front porch”. What does that mean anyway?

One recent MSB comment (in reference to current-events — BLM / Marxist rioting, pillaging, attacks on American civilians and their property, and general CW2 tactics) reads, “Don’t fight from your front porch, defend YES. Don’t stand before the raging elephants, you’ll get stomped into prison.”

I’ll share some possible scenarios that might apply to me and my situation.
