This article presents information related to homeowner's association in the United States. Nevada state senator Michael Schneider was on his way to an important floor session a couple of years ago when his secretary insisted he take a phone call. An angry constituent was on the line. She wasn't mad at Schneider, but she was mad at the president of her homeowners association, whom she was holding at gunpoint on her front stoop. Schneider managed to diffuse the situation, but it was emblematic.
