Weapons Related Georgia Code

I have created this reference because the State of Georgia quit hosting the unannotated code online and turned the hosting over to Lexis-Nexis. Because it is a portal, Lexis-Nexis does not allow deep links to thier pages (meaning I cannot link to a specific code, you must go to their site and search for the code number itself). I will make every attempt to keep theses pages up to date but always make sure to double check the offical code at Lexis-Nexis.
