    It depends upon whether you have a concealed handgun license. If you have a CHL, Ohio Rev. Code § 2923.126(C)(3)(b) provides: "A landlord may not prohibit or restrict a tenant who is a licensee and who on or after the effective date of this amendment enters into a rental agreement with the landlord for the use of residential premises, and the tenant’s guest while the tenant is present, from lawfully carrying or possessing a handgun on those residential premises."

    Well, did you sign it? If you haven't signed it you can refuse, but that may well mean that you don't get to rent there. If you've signed it... idk.

    Just MY opinion and IANAL, but I say sign it and don't say a word. Then, carry on. If it's not enforcable in the State's eyes, there's nothing the landlord can do.

    If you have already rented the apartment, seems to me a lawyer barred in Ohio and practicing this area of law can advise you of your rights and responsibilities in this area with some precision - lease holders are to some extent considered the temporary owners of property generally under property law so you might be pleasantly surprised.
