    Is it legal in the state of GA to carry a gun concealed or openly without a permit?

    Well not exactly.
    The exemption is for certain code sections.

    You will find additional code sections that are not listed as exempt.
    Those additional code sections specify a GWL.

    As Col. Hans Landa would say: "OOH, that's a bingo !!"

    MRM is right that just because a service member doesn't need a GWL to carry "out in public" that doesn't mean such a service member is granted the same exceptions to the many off-limits locations. GWL holders can bring their guns SOME PLACES that service members without a GWL cannot. So being in the military or state guard or state defense force gives you MORE carry rights than Joe Blow average citizen, it doesn't let you legally carry in all the same places as Sam Sheepdog the GWL holder.

    For example, having a gun in your vehicle on any school property.
    Having a gun on you as you escort a student to and from a school while picking up or dropping off that student.
    Parking in a public parking lot next to the jail and Sheriff's Office, which is within the "jail guard lines."
    Carrying on the grounds of a commercial service airport.

    Also, depends on your current status in the military, the discussion of which is way beyond the scope of this post.

    If you have current orders that you are "under arms" or certain other status, you can carry openly, concealed or however you are authorized. In these cases, it is not a matter of exemption if state law, but pre-emption of state law by federal law. But if you are relying on this, you better have a clear understanding of what you are doing, preferably from a JAG.
