Glory me! Yes, HOA board members and managers are all jittery in Illinois because the courts have upheld the validity of the Second Amendment. Somehow, in their warped way of thinking the CAI (Community Association of Idiots) have figured out that by having a strong Second Amendment and conceal/carry laws, there might be more assaults and threats against HOA board members!
In fact, the CAI recently commissioned a study which ‘proved’ that 13% of board members, managers or homeowners had been physically assaulted and that 52% had been threatened with assault. It’s linked below for those of you curious enough, or bored enough, to want to read further.
Now folks, please understand that I’m a lifelong investigative reporter. I’ve traipsed through slums and I’ve plunked myself down on sofas in Governors’ mansions. I’ve shaken hands with murderers in jail cells and the highest officials in the White House. And you’ll just have to believe me when I say these numbers (13% and 52%) are as crooked as a dog’s hind leg. I could walk into any inner city neighborhood and not find that 52% of the population has been threatened with bodily harm. Unless the CAI produces their survey, I call “fake!”
If such a huge huge number of people are being assaulted or threatened, then it cannot be the people…it has to be the atmosphere. Create a village where all members are supposed to spy on and report the ‘illegal’ activities of neighbors and I might believe a large percentage of people are willing to use physical violence against the Village Idiots.
In the meantime, DO NOT believe the lies perpetrated by the Homeowners Association industry.
