    How is the best way to deal with an apartment complex not allowing firearms(or any weapon) of any kind?

    The best way is to move somewhere that does allow firearms. I wouldn't give my money to that kind of place, if I had any other options. However, I realize that might not be possible, so if you're stuck there I'd start looking for friends/family you trust. Buy a good gun safe so they don't have to worry about something (theft, fire, etc.) happening to your guns, and keep them at a friend's or family member's house or apartment.

        It shouldn't even be legal to prohibit a resident from exercising a Constitutional right. I believe that in some states, laws have been enacted that do prevent a landlord from doing this. That doesn't help you any, of course, unless you want to move. Minnesota is one, I just read. But anyway, have you tried talking to the owner? Of course I don't know these people, but if you're able to convince them that you're a responsible, law-abiding gunowner, it might change their minds. If you have a gun safe, that might be even better; I think a lot of people who fear guns are a little more reasonable when they know that the firearms are under lock and key.

          A bic lighter and a can of hairspray make a torch,there are countless items that can be considered a weapon.I'd carry any way ,2nd amendment shall not be infringrd upon.Out of sight out of mind.

            I can not understand what good it is to have a gun for personal protection if it is locked in a gun safe when you need it. If it is locked up, what good is it doing a person when the need arises ? You are just as well off without any protection if you can not get to a gun in a safe !

              I certainly see that point, Richard; I was just suggesting a way that they might possibly come to a compromise with the landlord. At the moment, I think the concern is just being able to keep their hunting guns there in their own residence.

                I had not even noticed the part about "any weapon." Does this mean you can't even have a survival knife in your gear? What about a camping axe? If that's the case, I think these landlords might indeed be moving into some legally dicey areas.

                  Matt, I guess I was only thinking about a gun for personal protection. I did not even consider hunting guns (silly me) and keeping them in a safe place. That could be a big problem and one worthy of considerable thought, one I wish I had a good answer for.

                    Technically any thing that can be used to defend yourself with, can be called a weapon.
                    With that being said, it would be very difficult for a landlord to be specific enough in order that their rule of no weapons could ever be legal or binding in a court of law. They certainly would need to name many other things beside firearms, bows, knives, clubs, baseball bats, etc., etc, ect !!
