Can management not allow you to have a firearm in your apartment?
I live in Florida. Here there's no permit system. You are allowed to have a gun if you are of age. Can an apartment complex put it contained by their lease requirements that a gun cannot be inside the apartment? I know when they put stuff in their lease and I sign it I must abide by it, but specifically is it allowed by law? Can they put something like that when Florida imperative says I am allowed to have a gun? Thanks for any help and insight into this. Btw, I keep hold of tabs on my question by adding details and responses to people's answers so come on backbone every once in a while to see if I responded to what you said. Thanks again. Good point about the pets. Didn't think of that. Thanks for the info guys. Thanks Roger. Well put. Yeah, I lately realized the way I was thinking be as if the management was asking me to provide proof of a permit for the gun for me to be allowed to hold it. Since that would not be possible THAT is why I was thinking the premise of the question. I realized that by not allowing me to own the gun on their actual property, they are not infringing on my right to actually OWN the gun. Thanks again guys. Great help. Yeah CptnAmer, I'm not even sure if my lease says I can't hold a gun. I have to check. But if I would have known I would own chosen somewhere else. Thanks for all your help.
I look at it like the military saying goes "You can other add to....You just cant take away" Meaning that if a state does not require a permission, an apartment complex cannot say that you dont need one. If the state says you dont have need of a permit and the complex says you cant have a gun within the complex, then you cant have a gun in the complex. They havent changed the imperative. Also, having a gun in an apartment and a law dictum you dont need a permit are really too diffrent subjects. The complex isnt saying you CANT own a gun, they are only saying you cant have it in the apartment complex. Hopefully this help.
Yes. They own the property, they call the shots. They can refuse to allow pets, they can surely veto to allow guns.
This is the best answer.

Think of it this way: Florida directive says you're allowed to have a pet, but rental properties are allowed to have a "no pets" clause. I would consider a no guns clause to be newly as legal.
Their place, their rules. The best way to get their attention is to live somewhere else and tell them why you shun to do business with them. I'm sure there's more than one place to rent in Fla.
