    SC bed and breakfast

    I know SC law says you must have the owners permission to enter a residence with a concealed weapon. It is not required for a hotel/motel, since they are businesses that you are paying to stay in.
    Anyone know where a bed and breakfast would falls on this? You are paying to stay there, like a motel, but it is also a private residence.

    SECTION 23-31-225. Carrying concealed weapons into residences or dwellings.

    No person who holds a permit issued pursuant to Article 4, Chapter 31, Title 23 may carry a concealable weapon into the residence or dwelling place of another person without the express permission of the owner or person in legal control or possession, as appropriate. A person who violates this provision is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not less than one thousand dollars or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both, at the discretion of the court and have his permit revoked for five years.

    SECTION 23-31-230. Carrying concealed weapons between automobile and accommodation.

    Notwithstanding any provision of law, any person may carry a concealable weapon from an automobile or other motorized conveyance to a room or other accommodation he has rented and upon which an accommodations tax has been paid.
    So, assuming this B&B is an actual business that is charging you the hotel tax, the "notwithstanding" part means it trumps the private residence part. However, the hotel exception only lets you carry weapons between your vehicle and room, so you couldn't carry it elsewhere in the house (to breakfast, for instance).

    If the owner/operator of the B&B also lives there, then is it not also their dwelling/residence? Just wondering.

    It is their dwelling/residence, but the "notwithstanding" part of the hotel provision mean it trumps the dwelling provision.
