I have a S.C. cwp and am a resident. I work at a church and i am a minister. how does the castle doctrine come into play. It, if i am rading it right, states that i can have a gun in my place of business. Or does this just mean i do not have to retreat.

In SC:

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.

In SC:
