    At one meeting a woman stood up and quite outraged said,"There are some people living here who have handguns!"
    ... implying we have criminals in our midst. People really should first learn the meaning of words, before blurting out something like that, and the point of the exercise.

    In Oregon, every upstanding adult citizen is able to, thankfully. That can't be said about all places.

    As soon as you are president you should disband the HOA. Nice little pieces of American Socialism those thing are.


    And don't tell them you carry.

    personally, i hate the HOA, but i see what not having one can do to neighborhoods around here. The HOA keeps the place looking nice and people in check. People can be such slobs.

    I'm surprised they haven't tried to outlaw guns that don't match the exterior of your house.

    I too have issues with HOA, but I do choose to live in one for the few benefits (no cars on blocks, etc.)

    Don't tell, you are legal and as long as you don't hold your meetings where it is legally posted to not carry then there is no reason to worry about it.

    Get in, do good for your community, go home; that is all you need to worry about.

    That you carry concealed is absolutely nobody's business but yours. Continue to carry but tell no one.

    I'm with everyone else on this one...
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Under no circumstances should you tell anyone.

    One, none of their business.
    Two, legal.
    Three, sheeple with liberal agendas do stupid things when given an avenue of attack.
    Four, none of their business.
    Five, if you ever do get someone who has violent intent the last thing you want is for them to know before hand how you may defend yourself.
    Six, none of their business.
    But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

    You forgot one, it's none of their business.

    Personally I think that, if others are as aggravated at your HOA as you are, but are not responsible enough to try to change it the way you are, then being the "gray man" on the HOA will serve you very well.

    Sigh. Agreed. At least we only have 14 homes.

    Whether you are armed or not is none of their business! I definitely would not disclose. What would the purpose be besides negating the advantage you have when carrying?

There are stories of other members being verbally assaulted and in some cases, it came close to physical...so i am wondering if i should disclose the nature of what i carry when they start interviewing me for the position....so they are aware that this board member is always armed.

    I would be posting notices...and all the other fun stuff HOA's do, so of course there is the potential of ish going down.

    also, it probably is NOT a good idea to OC when i am doing hoa business...

    i'd like to hear what everyone has to say...

    I honestly see know reason to share with anyone that you have a CCW...It may back fire and the person you have issues with may fire first or say that you brandished the weapon... Just conduct your HOA business in the same manor that you wanted to be treated... My two cents...Good luck and be safe!!!

    Bad idea. I am also the president of My HOA, and would never consider advertising to the commuity that I carry, and that I am always armed at our meetings. It is simply none of their business.

    IMO, only bad things can come from your disclosing that you carry.
