    I don't see why you couldn't, unless you are getting married in a federal building, a school, a university, or a child-care facility.

    You'll have to go to the court house to get your marriage license before having the ceremony performed. the court house is posted, they have metal detectors there as well.

    It didn't occur to me that you might have to go to court for that. Never having been married, I didn't know that.

    It's the place where the husband agrees to forfeit half of everything for better or for worse, forever.

    If I remember correctly, the Marriage License Bureau has a different entrance than the main court. No metal detectors last I walked past, but that was 3+ years ago when I used to fix the muni court's copiers.

    You might want to be careful carrying around the court house. Someone empty carried and was harassed while trying to pay a traffic ticket.

    My girlfriend works at the Golden Nugget as a manger and has informed me that they do not permit Open Carry, But, one you are checked into your room, you are protected and have certain rights. They can prohibit open carry on their property, but they cannot keep you from coming and going. If you are on your way out or back in to your room, you can open carry to and from, but if you are using the services and amenities of their hotel, they can ask you to secure your arms in your room or with the security office.

    Your hotel room is part of your home, and is protected by the Second Amendment. The rest of the hotel and casino is fair game for them to set and enforce whatever policy they wish provided that it does not exclude a protected class. The RKBA is not a protected class there.

    I'm a bit curious about this. Do you have evidence that this is the case? I work for a hotel, and as I understand it, guests can be removed from their hotel room if their dogs bark too loudly, so I wouldn't doubt it if a hotel gave you the boot for violating other policies. You may be entitled to a refund though if you weren't told up front about the rules.

    I'll look into this and get back to you with facts. right now, all I have to go on is vague supposition.

    It's private property. The owners can do anything that they are willing to risk a lawsuit over.

    Dogs baring too loudly disturbs other guests and yes you can and probably will be kicked out for that. You can even be fined at your own home for your dogs disturbing your neighbors. That is totally different from being able to have gun in your home or room. As long as you do not damage anything and do not disturb the other guests there is not much they can about kicking you out unless it is something illegal.

    I have not verified it completely in all states but as long as you pay your bill daily they can't even kick you out because someone else has made a reservation and they are full. I know some people that could not get a room for one of the football bowl games as everything in town was booked. They just went down a day early when there were plenty of rooms available and then refused to leave the next day. As they paid their bill on time and it was a daily rental agreement deal they couldn't be kicked out The people with reservations for the next day were out of luck.

    My suggestion is this, Call the security supervisor and be upfront and well mannered. Tell him or her that you are a guest in the hotel and will be lawfully carrying a firearm while going to and coming from your room. Tell him or her that you will either secure your firearm in your room or with the security lockup when using hotel services and amenities. Ask for a direct line to their department so when you are coming and going you can give them a heads up before hand.

    My understanding is that not all rooms have safes; request a room that has one. If you decide to use the security lockup, I suggest buying a hard sided case or something like a GunVault that you can put your own lock on. That way you can bee more certain that the firearm you are handing over is not accessible to them even in their own lockup. If you hand over your firearm to be put in their lockup, get a signed and time stamped receipt that itemizes everything they secured for you.

    Actually, the hotel can refuse to accept your payment if they have reserved the room. They have a lot of power, unless you can prove that they violated your civil rights (such as refusal to rent due to your race, handicap, etc).

    They can also limit what you are allowed to bring into the room or onto hotel property, and are not required to give you specific notice -- so they can decide to throw you out because your OC disturbed other guests or staff.

    I agree with the poster who suggests contacting the hotel and informing them that you're bringing your gun(s), except if you are in a park-by-room place like most Motel 6 rooms. It's better to have the problem while it's early enough to find another place to stay, if they are rabidly hoplophobic.

    The main point of my post was just to point out the difference between disturbing the other guests an minding your own business and getting thrown out. I agree that contacting them in advance is the best thing to do however I am not sure about the gun disturbing other guests as being legitimate.

    As far as the refusing to accept payment I can't argue with you on that as I have heard it both ways and I think it does vary from state to state. I do know of one case where this happened and the hotel allowed the people to stay in the room saying that by law there was nothing they could do. That would be an interesting case for the courts to decide and create confusion for motels that depend on big events to fill the rooms. A no-win situation for the motel for sure.

    In SC there is a specific law that says you can carry from your car to your room that you have paid for and is one of the places that you can OC in the state and CC without a permit.
