Posted on 03/22/2014 10:06:46 AM PDT by rktman
Some people in a Nashville neighborhood are furious over a new rule that makes it illegal to own a gun.
Residents in Nashboro Village said it's unconstitutional and leaves them defenseless.
Two weeks ago, residents received a letter from their homeowners' association indicating that guns are not allowed on the property.

This happened in Tennessee?
Rhode Island, Connecticut, or California, maybe, but Tennessee?
Patently illegal. They can ban shooting but not ownership. Ignore.
I’d say it’s time to host some NRA and local Tea Party meetings there...
My high rise in Arlington, VA had the same type of restrictions. As a permit holder I ignored that crap. I challenged it and was told I would sue them silly if they ever tried to enforce it.
hoa nazis are everywhere.
I get a letter like that from my HOA, I’ll shit-can it. If they want my private property, then by all means they can come and take it.
They just better be prepared for what meets them.
Find out who specifically wrote that piece of crap and I guarantee you it will be a Rat.
A Home Owners Association can only enforce the agreement an owner signed when they bought the property. The HOA cannot add any new rules. If the “no guns” rule was in the deed, the second amendment does not apply, because the owner agreed to that provision as a condition of purchasing the property. If it’s not in the deed the HOA can go pound sand.
Every state has laws governing HOAs that limit what HOAs can do, and usually say that any illegal restriction is void.
That is undoubtedly the case here.
And if a no-gun restriction is legal, then I have no pity for the morons that willing bought with such a restriction. It’s implausible that such a restriction could be newly enacted.
Look at the great reviews on the property...not
But I do have reservations, since we're dealing with "evil" guns here.
Check the covenants. The HOA may have passed this rule on their own, and how are they going to enforce it? Sounds like a slate of HOA officers who have become too big for their britches. Most states limit HOAs in what they can do, esp. if their rules go against state/county/municipal law. I’d keep my gun, if I lived there, and dare them to do anything about it. Are they going to get SWAT teams in and search everybody’s house and car? I don’t think so.Not only that, but a big sign “this development is gun-free” wd get some attention from thugs in the area. Not good. Must be a rumor, only a rumor.
And if it’s not in the original, the homeowners should sue the HOA and demand it be disbanded/nullified/abandoned. Anybody know how to dismantle an hoa?
Anyone can say “anything” and write “anything” but enforcing it is another matter. For the residents there, just make it known that you have guns on your property (and let it be known loudly and widely, especially for management) - and then “just sit back”.
Let the property management try and enforce it! If they attempt some legal maneuver, you can bet that the Second Amendment will trump that. They’ll just have to be slapped down by the Second Amendment, in a court of law, in order to teach them the lesson.
Criss Simpkins is the manager of the property
All who abide by this letter are requiroed to post a sign stating;
Same is true for candidate or issue signs at ELECTION time....free speech doesn’t stop at your property line....altho the HOA can determine WHEN those signs go up and should come down.
Isn’t that Al Gores state? Probably afraid the powder smoke will cause global warming.
I have owned 4 properties so far in my life.
I will NEVER buy where there is an HOA or CC&R’s.
