    SC denies CC at any place that charges admission.

    That's OK, just come on over to the Texas State Fair instead. You can carry here.

    Do you have a link or reference regarding SC not allowing concealed carry at places that charge admission?

    I know that is true for NC.

    But, I haven't heard this for SC and I can't find anything indicating this.

    Definitely would like a citation for this one...that's the first I've ever heard of that in South Carolina.

    This is not true in South Carolina. It is however true in North Carolina.

    Of the venues that would typically be covered by an admission-based ban, such as sporting events and rock concerts, SC looks like it only expressly bans carry in sporting events. http://handgunlaw.us/states/southcarolina.pdf

    However, on the SC State Fair website they expressly state that concealed weapons aren't allowed even by permit holders.
    General Entrance Policy, Item 3: http://2010.scstatefair.org/home/rul...gulations.html

    Then again, SC has specific sign requirements like Texas does so if they don't post those signs, the best they can do is ask you to leave I suppose. I don't know if I would want to be the one to test it, though.

    SC expressly bans carry "at school or college athletic events not related to firearms" Section 23-31-215 (M).

    As for the OP, SC does not prohibit carry at events that charge admission - unless of course that event falls under another restriction category.

    Schools:
    Section 16-23-420. (A) It is unlawful for a person to possess a firearm of any kind on any premises or property owned, operated, or controlled by a private or public school, college, university, technical college, other post-secondary institution, or in any publicly-owned building, without the express permission of the authorities in charge of the premises or property. The provisions of this subsection related to any premises or property owned, operated, or controlled by a private or public school, college, university, technical college,
    or other post-secondary institution, do not apply to a person who is authorized to carry a concealed weapon pursuant to Article 4, Chapter 31, Title 23 when the weapon remains inside an attended or locked motor vehicle and is secured in a closed glove compartment, closed console, closed trunk, or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of the vehicle."

    That's an important clarification. I missed that point. Thanks.

    Since GA was listed in the question, perfectly legal here since SB308 was passed.

    Your SC permit wouldn't be recognized in Ga since they don't recognize ours; that is unless you have a Fl permit or other such permit that Ga has reciprocity with.

    In SC? Can't do it, but cross the state line and enjoy such freedoms in FL.
