Well the HOA has now sent out a letter stating basically that "All firearms are banned on common areas". No Pellet guns, no BB guns, etc.
I would like to send them a letter in response letting them know that I exercise my rights and that I will at times carry openly, lawfully, and that their letter is pre-empted
by my Constitutional rights. Not sure how to word it.
The other angle I would like to explore is as follows; I am a part owner of this private property, and as such I am allowed to carry LOADED if I desire.
I would not carry loaded unless something of an emergency situation came up but I would carry open unloaded with my mags on my hip.
I have advised at least one of the board members via E-mail that what they are doing is a potential violation of the 2nd Amendment. I let him know that some people within the community care about their rights and that they will not stand to have them trampled on.
I do have lawyer contacts but unfortunately they are tough to consult.
So I would like to draft a letter putting them on notice that I am aware of their attempt to infringe upon my rights under the Constitution of the United State of America and that if I wish I WILL carry openly as allowed to, under the law, if I wish.
I believe that by delivering such a letter I am serving them notice legally. To do nothing is to accept what they are attempting to do. Does that make sense? I think it does.
I have misplaced the letter but am going to obtain a duplicate copy so I can post part of it here.
To be continued......
