The only exceptions (per above) were towns which had been through civil wars in which the artisans were defeated, like Nuremberg, in which case there were some limitations such as how long a sword could be or how much gunpowder they could keep in their house. But they were still armed and could still walk around with sidearms, in fact they were expected to do so except when at work or at the baths or something like that. They even went to church armed.
