"I enjoy what I do," Burns said. "Being an ex-Army guy, I get the job done."
The night of the attack, snowbirds had arrived from Canada and needed a key to enter a unit.
So just before 1:30 a.m., Burns left his home, rode his bicycle to the other side of the complex and gave them the key. Along the way, he heard many people shouting and cursing.
"As president, I went out to see what was going on," he said. "I have to intervene to see what's going on, and to see if I can diffuse it."
Holding his bicycle at his side, Burns neared two men and a woman involved in the disturbance.
"I said, 'Hey, you guys. We can't have this kind of disturbance going on," he said. "You guys should cut this mess out or I'm going to call police."
In hindsight, "that was a mistake," Burns said. "I should have just called the cops."
So he actually knew they were there, pissed them off, and still managed not to have situational awareness.
