Whether to sign a lease agreement that is poorly worded/too broad if the landlord will not change it?

I am planning to sign a lease on an apartment, but there are a few expressions that I am hesitant to sign;
"To the greatest extent permitted by law, Landlord shall not be liable to Resident, even for negligent acts or omissions of Landlord or Landlord's agents or employees, for any damage or injury, whether to person or property, loss, or destruction to Resident's property, including but not limited to any damage or injury, whether to person or property, loss, or destruction of property sustained by Resident from any cause including but not limited to the causes and risks set forth herein."
This appears to me to exempt the landlord from liability, even if he/she breaks into my flat and shoots me. Is this correct?
