It’s about feelings, not what is actually done or any other facts.

“You didn’t say you were going to shoot me,” Magi replied. “But I was really upset.”

Get it?

And they are in power increasingly at the local, state, and Federal level.

Bad news?

They have the votes, and they have the voters.

Good news?

They are flammable.

Got local intel and individual profiles?

You are going to need them.

WARWICK — Firearms are now prohibited in Warwick’s Town Hall.

The ban was triggered by a July meeting at which an angry resident, Jon Calcari, raised his voice, and Selectboard Chairwoman Dawn Magi said she felt threatened by the man, whom she knew to sometimes carry a handgun. After the incident, she asked herself if guns were truly needed in town meetings or Town Hall.

“I don’t dislike guns in their place, but I know there are people here who carry and when one person, whom I once considered a friend, threatened me, it made me very nervous,” she said. “The reason I am bringing this up is for the safety of the board and not to deprive anybody else. I do not feel safe anymore.”

Calcari assured Magi and everyone else in the room that in the past half-century of owning, handling and carrying guns, he’s never pointed a weapon toward a person.

“I have never in my life threatened anybody with a gun or any other way, ever,” he said. “For 56 years, I’ve been carrying guns.”

“You didn’t say you were going to shoot me,” Magi replied. “But I was really upset.”

At Monday’s board meeting, members of the Selectboard voted 2-1 to support the ban. Lawrence “Doc” Pruyn voted against the ban while Magi and Nicholas Arguimbau voted in favor.

According to state laws on handguns, the following places are off-limits for handguns, even for those with a License to Carry permit: courthouses, public elementary or secondary schools, colleges or universities, and airports (except for federal or state law enforcement, security employees and military personnel on duty).

Magi ended the public comment period Monday after 50 minutes of heated discussion during which both residents and board members expressed the pros and cons of banning firearms on the premises.

“I feel very uncomfortable that we are announcing to the world we are now unarmed here. That will (lure) every wacko this side of the Mississippi to come over,” said Nicholas Hay of Westminster.

Tom Wyatt, a member of the Broadband Committee, had a different view: the board shouldn’t question whether it’s a good or bad idea to ban firearms, but evaluate the way in which the meetings are handled.

“I’m really concerned about the behavior of the meeting that can lead to a threat being made or rudeness to happen,” he said. “A very important thing is for the Selectboard to take care of the demeanor of the meeting. Things get hot, people get upset, but we need to respect each other.”

One person at the meeting asked Magi to divulge her personal reason why she feels it’s necessary to ban firearms at Town Hall. Magi said there’s just no way the board members can know how people are going to react in the heat of a moment.

“Personally, I don’t know what people are dealing with or what they are going to do,” she said. “People don’t come to Selectboard meetings, Planning Board meetings, Zoning Board meetings, to say, ‘Hey you’re doing a great job.’ They come because they are angry because there is something they disagree with and they feel their rights are violated.”

A few people out of the 15 in attendance said the ban would infringe on their Second Amendment rights, to which Town Coordinator David Young read an email exchange between him and the town’s lawyer, Jeremia Pollard.

“The Selectboard manages town property. As the executive board, it can make adjudications regarding town property, including Town Hall. In this regard, I think it is likely that a firearms ban for Selectboard meetings would survive a constitutional challenge (at least in Massachusetts),” Young read.

Some residents questioned how the rule would be enforced.

“Are you going to put a metal detector at that door?” Hay asked. “Or is there going to be Chief Shoemaker that’s going to frisk everyone who’s going to come through that door? How can you guarantee that someone isn’t going to have one in their pocket?”

“We can’t,” Magi responded.

The board hasn’t hammered out specifics on gun control regulations, how much to pay the officer standing on duty during the meetings, how long the officer will be present at the meetings — full-time or stopping in occasionally — and if an officer’s presence should be requested at every meeting held in the Town Hall.

According to the board, until this issue is resolved, a police officer will stand in Selectboard meetings to ensure the safety of everyone in the room.

“If it is violated, the remedy that makes sense to me is to serve a no-trespass notice on anyone who refuses to comply with the order,” Pollard wrote.

Young ended the conversation with two final questions before the voting began.

“Is it prudent to have firearms at your meetings?” Young asked. “Is it prudent to allow firearms in this building? As your employee, in my opinion, it is not. As a resident and an employee, I ask you to inhibit firearms in this building.

“I’m not depriving people of their rights to bear arms, only to say just for the purpose of this meeting, ‘Would you mind not having the gun?’”

  1. This goes beyond just 2nd Amend rights. When the board was asked how they would enforce it, it became apparent that all three seats had blank stares. This is an inherent ability to think beyond the next step. This inability to formulate a comprehensive set of thoughts is running rampant in our society and has given rise to the single issue persona.

    Ah, that’s in Massghanistan, would you expect any better?

  3. You need to add suffers from extra mental stress due totoxoplasmosis from being exposed to all the cat shit.
    From the Mayo Clinic…

    If you’re healthy, you probably won’t know you’ve contracted toxoplasmosis. Some people, however, develop signs and symptoms similar to those of the flu, including:

    Body aches
    Swollen lymph nodes
    Headache
    Fever
    Fatigue

    signs and symptoms of severe infection, including:

    Headache
    Confusion
    Poor coordination
    Seizures
    Lung problems that may resemble tuberculosis or Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia, a common opportunistic infection that occurs in people with AIDS
    Blurred vision caused by severe inflammation of your retina (ocular toxoplasmosis)

    Probably why old ladies with 700 cats are found dead in their cat shit infested homes.
    I worked for a cat lady who was on an area zoning board/building dept.
    Left a miter saw and my toolbelt there over a weekend-after several days of trying to get the smell out-I tossed both in the trash.

  5. Even stupid people need somewhere to live. Massachusetts is a perfect place for them. I hope the board’s decision attracts similar people from other states, thus improving those states.

  6. The Supreme Court has now definitively held that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that weapon for traditionally lawful purposes, Moreover, this right applies not just to the federal government, but to states and municipalities as well.. – See more at: http://constitution.findlaw.com/amendment2.html#sthash.MBES0vXX.dpuf

    It all just gets so confusing. I mean, this Alderwoman-or whatever she’s calling herself-decides, on her own kitty-loving person self, that she can’t see or know or even imagine that a GUN could be anywhere near her. So she bans them at meetings, because she has projected that some citizen paying her salary might actually take umbrage at her demented ravings and shoot her? Wow! Imagine that! Oddly, Alderwoman Kitty Kat didn’t mention bombs, or swords, or knives, or plug in hybrids as being banned yet they could also take her out. Has she considered a bar b cued pork butt? I hear those are getting offensive too. What about lead powder, matches, and wood kindling? Can they show up? Is kerosene banned? What about Cecil the lion?
    I need to start a list…..

    I live in a triplex  and the old bat in the middle unit has a cat collection from hell. Chain smokes, carries oxygen, calls the law on a regularly basis. Had a problem with me taking a weapons case to and from my vehicle. Never mind we live in the county. Out past the city limit signs.

  8. God help these weak, hormonal, neutered people, when their little perfect days come to a bend in the road…. Truly, does the normal thinking person with an ounce of self preservation left, Really think that way?… When ever I see this kind of thing, It reminds me that thugs, BG’s and Addicts will have some seriously easy pickins,for a long time… She’s scared of her own shadow.

  9. GUN FREE ZONE: A SAFE HAVEN FOR SOCIAL MISFITS AND DEMENTED PERSONS WHO CAN SAFELY INFLICT WHATEVER DAMAGE THEY CAN IMAGINE UPON INNOCENT PERSONS WITHOUT FEAR OF BEING STOPPED BY A LAW-ABIDING CONCERNED CITIZEN LEGALLY CARRYING A DEFENSIVE WEAPON.

  10. I had to Google “SJW.”
    I have a cat.
    I suck.

  11. just looking at the “new accounts” post-its…there it is…”Randi Fairbrother…10% discount on any fare over $10…she’s President of Catalyst for Cats”

    Ironically if cats had opposable thumbs they would probably not be opposed to using guns themselves. They seem fairly ruthless and straightforward in their thinking (except when they get the Midnight Crazies).

    The funniest thing that woman said was about people getting mad that their rights were infringed, and there she goes doing just that.
