    If there are no gunbuster signs posted I wouldn't tell anyone I'm carrying to a meeting & conceal well so nobody finds out accidentally. That's the surest way of having your community rules changed to prohibit guns. It seems that those communities just love to make up new ones. Even if the laws allow you to carry & signs have no legal bearing I wouldn't do it just to prove a point. Concealed is concealed. Nobody needs to know except you.

    I knew that they could impose fines but never dreamed that they could foreclose on a persons home. The OP might need to worry more about what his associations rules are than what laws he might be violating. The Government cannot take his home for violating a weapons law. It seems in some States that you home owners association might be able to do just that.

    It's funny how on some threads, you hear how frustrated people are that the HOA doesn't enforce the covenants to their liking against their dirtbag neighbor, and others hate their HOA for having any say-so on the appearance of the neighborhood.

    If you want to be in a neighborhood, your choice is one with no covenants, which can go downhill in value if the residents don't maintain it, or running the risk of a nazi HOA.

    Personally, I intend to opt for atctimmy's solution one day, and have my own farm outside of any subdivision.

    I have a concealed carry permit.
    Thanks!
    short answer: this depends on the state in which you reside. Refer to Handgunlaw.us and your state concealed carry law website to be sure.

    I agree that we have too much intrusion, but keep in mind, nobody "has to live that way". Some CHOOSE to live that way, other CHOOSE not to.

    As to the OP, like others have said, it depends on where the meetings are held. Are they held at a location that is off- limits? Also, as I read the above statute,
    FS 790.06 (12) (a) 7. Any meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or special district;- what would qualify as a governing body of a special district? How would FL law define that? I don't know, but just wondering about that. In GA, we are fine to carry at HOA meeting unless it is held at an off limits location (school, church, etc)

    HOAs are not the governing bodies stated in the statutes.

    Get on the Florida conceal carry forum and ask them there, then read in the forum and get caught up on the laws in your State.

    Why not just ask the people at the meeting? It only takes a minute to send an email.

    I'm a Board member, and the Treasurer of my association.

    I checked our condo docs to be sure about possible fines, but I already knew that carry was legal.

    A "special district" would be one that has the power to levy additional taxes. (Not fees, but for real taxes. A CDD - community development district - would be an example. They can levy taxes for roads within the district, for example.)

    Personally, I carry whenever I'm on the property.

    That does reveal to everyone in the committeee, and then realistically, everyone in the development, that you cc. Kind of negates the first 'c'. That is up to you/him.

    Why anyone would want to live in a neighborhood with a "committee" or "board" telling you what you can and can't do with your own home and property is beyond me. We have legislation coming out our eyeballs already from local, State, and the Federal government, why would you volunteer for more?

    It is truly amazing how many people ask these kind of questions and it is more scary to think that many of them take the word of an anonymous replier. I am sure, however, that if these people should end up in trouble because of inaccurate information, their transgressions will be forgiven once they tell the appropriate authorities that they got the information from Joe Blow on the Defensive Carry Forum. Any time this kind of question is asked as a lead in thread, an automatic disclaimer and reference to handgunlaw.us should be replied in kind.

    Because that might very well start some where there is none.
