While I respect your right to not allow chickens to be armed, I am reminded  
of the Orwellian novel Animal Farm where all animals  were equal but some more 
equal than others.  I believe your  chickens should not only be searching for 
an attorney to defend their second  amendment rights, but should be 
contacting the feds themselves on civil rights  violations.
Putting aside the inalienable rights issue, one should also consider that  
the word "chicken" is synonymous with "fraidy cat".  Considering that, one  
would think you would be even more compassionate toward the chickens,  
that they are quaking in their boots at night, worrying about break  ins and 
what nots.  If anyone should be armed, it is the anxiety-prone  chickens.
Of course, I know someone will be alarmed at arming  not only  chickens, but 
nervous chickens at that, so perhaps your co-housing group could  consider 
investing in group fire arm safety lessons or at least providing gratis  zoloft 
for the chickens.

The  subject header is Firearm policy and chickens. Out here in the country,
we  do not allow our chickens to have firearms. I understand a couple of  our
chickens are looking for a lawyer to allow them their 2nd Amendment  rights.
I think we'll be eating those ones soon.
