This part shall not apply to:

(1) A peace officer of any duly authorized police agency of this state or of any political subdivision thereof, or a law enforcement officer of any department or agency of the United States who is regularly employed and paid by the United States, this state, or any such political subdivision, or an employee of the Department of Corrections of this state who is authorized in writing by the commissioner of corrections to transfer or possess such firearms while in the official performance of his duties;

(2) A member of the National Guard or of the armed forces of the United States to wit: the army, navy, marine corps, air force, or coast guard who, while serving therein, possesses such firearm in the line of duty;

(3) Any sawed-off shotgun, sawed-off rifle, machine gun, dangerous weapon, or silencer which has been modified or changed to the extent that it is inoperative. Examples of the requisite modification include weapons with their barrel or barrels filled with lead, hand grenades filled with sand, or other nonexplosive materials;

(4) Possession of a sawed-off shotgun, sawed-off rifle, machine gun, dangerous weapon, or silencer by a person who is authorized to possess the same because he has registered the sawed-off shotgun, sawed-off rifle, machine gun, dangerous weapon, or silencer in accordance with the dictates of the National Firearms Act, 68A Stat. 725 (26 U.S.C. Sections 5841-5862); and

(5) A security officer employed by a federally licensed nuclear power facility or a licensee of such facility, including a contract security officer, who is trained and qualified under a security plan approved by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission or other federal agency authorized to regulate nuclear facility security; provided, however, that this exemption shall apply only while such security officer is acting in connection with his or her official duties on the premises of such nuclear power facility or on properties outside the facility property pursuant to a written agreement entered into with the local law enforcement agency having jurisdiction over the facility. The exemption under this paragraph does not include the possession of silencers.
If "this part" refers to the all of the statutes that comprise "Georgia Firearms and Weapons Act" and subsections (1) and (2) are meant to exempt on-duty peace officers and military from the entirety of "Georgia Firearms and Weapons Act", doesn't it also exempt anyone in possession of "a sawed-off shotgun, sawed-off rifle, machine gun, dangerous weapon, or silencer " in accordance with National Firearms Act from the entirety of "Georgia Firearms and Weapons Act"?

In other words, wouldn't it allow me to carry my loaded Rock River Arms SBR with me as I go to a football game or apply for my GFL renewal without threat of (successful) prosecution?

If not, why not?

If that's the case (and it reads that way to me), does anyone know where I can get a good deal on a Glock 18?

Guess that depends on your definition of a good deal. :)

No.

This part refers to 120-124.

That is part 2, Dangerous Weapons.

Public gatherings are in part 3, carrying.

USP Tactical for me w/ threaded barrel of course.

But a Baretta 93R would be a nice secondary, if you like burst fire, rather than full auto.

Or a MP5K PDW :minigun:

Ok. I can see the parts when I look at LexisNexis. I don't recall ever having seen those "parts" referenced before like that. It's rather confusing that there is an organizational element that isn't included when code sections are cited (i.e. 16-11-124). I learn something new every day on this board. :)
