Yes, I'm aware of that, and that's why I chose to phrase my message
the way I did.
Certainly a private property owner (including an organization) can
impose whatever
rules they want, on their property.  What I'm saying is, that as a
member of our local
hackerspace, I would argue vehemently against implementing a ban on
firearms, because
I think everyone should be allowed to exercise their right to self
defense.  This is, obviously, strictly
a separate discussion from anything about government regulations, the
2nd Amendment, etc.
