Not sure why this is news worthy, other than the media hates guns... but this may turn out to be an interesting case that could test the power of an HOA to defy the intent of 15.2-915.
Snip of HOA related portion (my bold added to highlight the ridiculous):
Stafford BZA grants home firearm sales permits
Gilason will have to clear another hurdle and get approval from The Willows homeowners association in addition to obtaining a federal firearms license.
That will likely present an obstacle for Gilason after several association representatives spoke against the business proposal on Tuesday.
Douglas Levy, a lawyer with Rees Broome PC, spoke as a lawyer for the homeowners association.
“This is out of line with what the residents of the community would want to see going on
,” Levy said.
He added that while the applicant is considering the best-case scenario, the board must consider the worst-case scenario such as what will happen when someone is denied their firearm inside Gilason’s home.
Levy said that he was speaking on behalf of four to five subdivision residents who were against the proposal. He later added that the board of directors for the homeowners association also were opposed to the business due to safety concerns.
