Without further information and without reading the full lease, I'm going to have to agree with you that you can have and own firearms and even keep them in your apartment. Of course, you need your permit to own the weapon and should consider your getting your conceal and carry license, if you haven't already. That class will give you much of the guidance you need on where you may carry your firearm.
