Moving to a new city can be a scary experience and especially at the drop of a hat like is common in the military. So, of course, a top priority is safety. Many have concerns and/or questions about whether or not a neighborhood is safe, if it offers safety features, or like in this case, if firearms are allowed. This would be a common request for someone in the military since firearms are pretty much normal belongings. In addition, firearm questions are especially common since these types of communities are geared toward military and certain crime rates are on the rise. Now, whether or not a community allows firearms depends on each specific community and their policies. Since you are only renting, the owner can ban firearms from their property. To get started you should first find a new community or a couple new communities to consider for your home.

Once you have a chance, review all of the options of the military apartments in Jacksonville that are provided byRentJax.com Military Housing. Decide what qualities you like about each and what you don't. Keep in mind: where they are located and what they offer in regards to unit and community features. Then you can call them up and request a tour of the property or a unit, find out if they offer any specials on rental rates, or if they can provide any other additional information. The individuals that work at the communities are leasing agents, they are very familiar with resident concerns and also the immediate area around the property. Now would also be a great time to find out about their firearms policy. A good way to do that is to explore their website to see if it indicates their policy on firearms there, you can call each community you're interested in, or you can take a look at the lease agreement and see if they have a no firearm stipulation. Unless you are told by a leasing agent or it specifically states that guns are banned, it's safe to say you can have one, legally, in your military apartment in Jacksonville. Most of these communities you are looking for are specifically geared towards the military so it is almost expected that you will come with firearms, but it is still a good idea to check. You also may want to check out state and local laws regarding firearms just to make sure everything is the same as your previous hometown.
