Was just reading in the 'Carry Issues' section a thread inquiring about Ohio CCW laws. They were discussing the legality and possible repercussions of getting caught in an establishment that has No CWP signs at the front door.

Today was the first time I ran into this. The store my daughter an I went to had the sign, so I stopped before entering and returned my gun to the truck.

What exactly are the fines in SC for carrying in an off limits establishment, and are they strictly enforced?

What's the business that's posting? Where are they located?

Did this establishment have signs that were legal? All entrances posted with legal signs?

If caught and convicted it's a trespassing after notice charge that carries a $250 fine and/or up to 30 days in jail. I believe any subsequent offense included revocation of one's CWP for...1 year?

It was a uppity/liberal boutique on King St. in Charleston.

Sign looked legit and was clearly posted at the only entrance. The only other place I recall seeing the sign is at the South Banks around here.

If I knew it was only a $250.00 fine, I may take my chances. And I typically refrain from breaking the law.

employer, owner, or person in legal possession or control of a sign stating "No Concealable Weapons Allowed" shall constitute notice to a person holding a permit issued pursuant to this article that the employer, owner, or person in legal possession or control requests that concealable weapons not be brought upon the premises or into the work place. A person who brings a concealable weapon onto the premises or work place in violation of the provisions of this paragraph may be charged with a violation of Section 16-11-620. In addition to the penalties provided in Section 16-11-620, a person convicted of a second or subsequent violation of the provisions of this paragraph must have his permit revoked for a period of one year. The prohibition contained in this section does not apply to persons specified in Section 16-23-20, item (1).



(10) place clearly marked with a sign prohibiting the carrying of a concealable weapon on the premises pursuant to Sections 23-31-220 and 23-31-235. Except that a property owner or an agent acting on his behalf, by express written consent, may allow individuals of his choosing to enter onto property regardless of any posted sign to the contrary. A person who violates a provision of this item, whether the violation is wilful or not, only may be charged with a violation of Section 16-11-620 and must not be charged with or penalized for a violation of this subsection.

Except as provided for in item (10), a person who wilfully violates a provision of this subsection is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not less than one thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than one year, or both, at the discretion of the court and have his permit revoked for five years.

Virtually every business on King St in Charleston has it posted. It is hard for us to find a decent eatery or bar in the area that is not posted.

Concealed is concealed. I would like to say that I don't patronize anti gun establishments, but I'm starting to run out of businesses I can support.

Lost of places are posted, legit signs not so much.

Anybody have a link to the requirements of a posted sign to be "legal?" I could use a refresher.

Thanks for that. I notice a lot of places have the circle and slash posted, but it is usually at the bottom of the door/entrance. According to the law, these are not legal since they are less than 40" above the ground, correct?

Correct, it is not a legal posting. That doesn't mean that they can't/won't ask you to leave or call the police on you. You will win in court.
