    he's not talking about his own home or property..he's talking about a community meeting on jointly-owned property.

    Start what? The original poster needs to know if he can carry there or not. I am sure they will inform him.

    Telling anyone including your family and friends has the same effect. If the original poster asks from an anonymous email address then it would not necessarily give away the fact that he/she is carrying.

    LEOs, Gun shop employees, and your buddy that owns a gun are almost always incorrect about gun laws.

    Read, study and know the laws for yourself. If it's not a prohibited place, carry on and don't tell, or ask permission from, anyone else.

    "Never say never"...

    Most assuredly, some HOAs can be oppressive and run by people consumed with the small amount of "authority" being a board member gives them. And at least here in AZ, HOAs can and do "enforce" their fees and assessments with the legal right to establish liens and foreclose on properties. But HOAs can and do serve beneficial purposes of upholding community standards and maintaining common areas. For example, my HOA expressly forbids unregistered motor vehicles parked anywhere except in a garage or behind a fence or wall, i.e., keep 'em out of sight. You want to work on your unregistered street rod or hobby car in your garage or on your RV pad, have at it - but you'll get slapped with a heavy fine if you leave your junked, clapped out Neon parked on the front lawn for more than a week or so. Like anything else, you need to know what you're getting into before you sign on the dotted line.

    If I lived in a HOA and they got on my bad side they would need to come up with new rules everyday(I have a vivid imagination and no shame)

    HOA rules , if u don't like them don't buy there. If ur looking to buy at one read the fine print several times to see if u can live by them and be happy.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Sometimes such groups meet in private homes: if the homeowner doesn't want you to carry, it's his turf. Some states require letting him know.

    If your group meets in a school building, you have your answer: no.

    If your group meets in a church building, and the church operates a school, you may have your answer, too: no.

    But I'm talking from many states away. +1 on the Handgun Law link.

    It would certainly get anyone aware of the email message on the alert that someone in the group carries and wants to do so to the meeting. It is just one of those things that opens up a can of worms....a person needs to decide if it's worth that or not.

    Could lead to a discussion in a meeting where pointed questions were asked...and a decision made on how to answer if not wanting to reveal (lying).

    I'm not saying it cant be done or shouldnt...just saying that few options would simply open and close the case.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    2. Any police, sheriff, or highway patrol station;
    3. Any detention facility, prison, or jail;
    4. Any courthouse;
    5. Any courtroom, except that nothing in this section would preclude a judge from carrying a concealed weapon or determining who will carry a concealed weapon in his or her courtroom;
    6. Any polling place;
    7. Any meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or special district;
    8. Any meeting of the Legislature or a committee thereof;
    9. Any school, college, or professional athletic event not related to firearms;
    10. Any elementary or secondary school facility or administration building;
    11. Any career center;
    12. Any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose;
    13. Any college or university facility unless the licensee is a registered student, employee, or faculty member of such college or university and the weapon is a stun gun or nonlethal electric weapon or device designed solely for defensive purposes and the weapon does not fire a dart or projectile;
    14. The inside of the passenger terminal and sterile area of any airport, provided that no person shall be prohibited from carrying any legal firearm into the terminal, which firearm is encased for shipment for purposes of checking such firearm as baggage to be lawfully transported on any aircraft; or
    15. Any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law.

    The history of some of these "board meetings" has demonstrated the need to carry a concealed weapon.
    Actually item 7 to says no carry at a meeting of governing body of a special district. Could that be applied to the OP's private community?

    As it stands, he can legally carry there. If there are no signs up, and nothing written in the by-laws prior to bringing the matter to everyone's attention, there probably will be soon.

    And if he remains concealed, there probably won't be. That might be construed as a violation of 2A rights. The legal hassle could go on for years, something neither side would look forward to financially. I don't know if the HOA would want to take on that burden.

    You're good to go CC to that community meeting here in FL.
    Don't ask, don't tell...even though it completely legal.
