I think the suit bag thing in the closet is the best Idea!!

I bought one of these a while back (link). If it wasn't for the locks on it you would have no idea it was anything other than furniture. I have it turned to where the locks face the couch. So most people never even see the locks. Even sitting there you really don't pay attention to them. I have an end table that matches it that has three drawers.

I've never heard of a rental property that tried to negate the 2A. I think I'd wan to have a legal man challenge that.

As far as I know, in most states if the landlord or company owns the property, I would think they can deny guns from being in their units. I don't like it, but I would think its the same idea as a store/business owner posting a sign that reads "No firearms."

My recommendation other than the closet hanger thing, which is brilliant, is an under the bed safe.

I.m not sure they can deny you guns in you unit. While they may own it, it is your domicile, and therefore, you have certain rights to have whatever you want, as long as it's legal. I think there are legal terms and laws for it, but I don't know what they are.

Drumjunkie, I followed your link to the table. And I clicked on the April 2013 link to the left. I will have to say, I'm more interested in the ladies' panties with the secret compartment. If my wife had those, I'd be constantly bumming a few bucks, even if I didn't need it.

The owners of the apartment have the right to put any exclusions that they wish in the lease. If you don't like it, you don't have to move there. I suspect that breaking that rule could get you evicted, just like moving a dog into a "no pet" place. The "rights" issue is a strange thing, other folks want their rights too.

That said, I would move in a gun safe for my stuff. It is no one's business what is in your safe.

Insanity. I'd tell the landlord exactly what i thought. A landlord cannot enter your residence without 24 or 48 hours notice (i cant remember exactly) unless it is a dire emergency. If they had to get in and then found your guns in your closet or underwear drawer, there could potentially be a serious lawsuit( considering they are legal otherwise and its not a 1919 you are hiding) I fought this battle twice in my time, and refused to rent ever again. As a renter you have a ton of rights. Become informed on those and make sure your landlord is aware that you are not a dumb pushover

I believe this is one of those things which is dependent on the state you live in. Possibly even the locality. Heck, it might even come down to the specific terms of your lease.

Legally in the states the most that the landlord could would be start an eviction proccess which can take up to 90 days sometimes less sometimes more depending on the state.

Having a gun in your domicile under lease isnt breaking a law just a rental agreement. Under eviction in wisconsin the landlord can keep your deposit.

Your state law may vary. Some states its excessively difficult to evict anyone for any reason.

If you choose to go the safe route check the load capacity of your flooring. Some safes can be dangerously heavy.

All of this..
Just think of it this way, if YOU were the land lord and YOUR rental agreement said 'no pets' or whatever you want to add, regardless of legality, you would expect renters to be truthful and abide by the rules of the agreement.
This is not a 'rights' issue. No one said you can't own or buy guns, it's simply saying you can't have them on THEIR property NOT YOURS. Understand? Do yourself and others a solid and find somewhere else to live.
No laws are being broken, so save your lawyer money for a better place to live.

I don't mean to be harsh but this IS a straight forward issue.

I don't know what you decor is, but I always liked furniture that can hide guns.
