Thread: Need advice on apartment nfa
I just recieved a call from a close friend who lives in the Henry Clay Apartments in Ashland. Today there has been a sign posted at the lobby entrance prohibiting firearms (including residents). I'm looking for some documentation regarding apartment building residences being prohibited to protect themselves. I'll also post this in the Legal Forum. Thanks, in advance, for posting anything you can on this matter that I can help these people out with.
If it's private property he can make almost any rule he wants, but he can't violate the terms of nor add restrictions to the existing leases for the leaseholders. Demanding that a person give up a constitutional right as a precondition to renting property or to enter into any contract seems a real stretch to me. If this is legal it would seem to me that the landlord could refuse to lease to anyone unless the tenant agreed to attended a certain church, allow only visitors of a certain race or belonged to a political party the landlord approved. I doubt he could do any of these, but I can't cite a statute. Tenets have extensive rights in KY. IANAL and the people who live in this property, and those that want to, may need one. What is going on in Ashland? Has it always been a place where the rights of the citizens were held in such low regard? I don't know much about Ashland, but the more I find out the less I like it.
It would seem to me that the very least, this would constitue a breach of contract! They can't just deicde one day to forbid weapons where you have been residing for a period of time. Keep in mind as well that this isn't law, it's a "rule". LOL
Got SIG? MOLON LABE
I asked the same question as has been posted today....some posted views.
Well I found the Kentucky Uniform Residential and Tenant Act of 1974. I do not see where you could not allow a firearm, but read it over. Also, it says that no restrictions can be added to the lease unless the lessee agrees to the change in writing. Hope this helps. The ruling authority appears to be under KRS 383

Speed is fine
Accuracy is final
If The Kentucky Legislature catcehs wind of this they will pass a Law about this..., I guarentee.
(2) Except as provided in KRS 527.020, the legislative body of a state, city, county, or urban-county government may, by statute, administrative regulation, or ordinance, prohibit or limit the carrying of concealed deadly weapons by licensees in that portion of a building owned, leased, or controlled by that unit of government. That portion of a building in which the carrying of concealed deadly weapons is prohibited or limited shall be clearly identified by signs posted at the entrance to the restricted area. The statute or ordinance shall exempt any building used for public housing by private persons, highway rest areas, firing ranges, and private dwellings owned, leased, or controlled by that unit of government from any restriction on the carrying or possession of deadly weapons.
The Ky. General Assembly is very gun friendly. How do think Ky. got such good gun laws.
