I stand corrected, then!  Perhaps this is one of those "you had to be 
there" things.  I still can't imagine why anyone would want or need a gun 
in their house, so much so that they would leave cohousing, but that's 
another discussion.  Thanks for taking the time to explain the situation. 

On the subject of revisiting issues with new members- I believe that our 
group had a policy in place that worked.  When I joined, we had not moved 
in yet, and the rule was something like there had to be a two-thirds 
majority vote in favor of revisiting an issue before it could be 
discussed again.  This removed the old/new member issue, while insuring 
that issues that had strong aggreement in the past would not be brought 
up again easily or often.
