If a person is driving through a school zone (private, public, college)...can they have a weapon on them and/or in the car and be legal? Extention of your home should cover this, yes?

Yes, as long as you're doing legal business or visiting a place of residence in that zone, or picking up/dropping off a student (granted you aren't a student there).

O.C.G.A. § 16-11-127.1

(d)(1) This Code section shall not prohibit any person who resides or works in a business or is in the ordinary course transacting lawful business or any person who is a visitor of such resident located within a school safety zone from carrying, possessing, or having under such person's control a weapon within a school safety zone; provided, however, it shall be unlawful for any such person to carry, possess, or have under such person's control while at a school building or school function or on school property, a school bus, or other transportation furnished by the school any weapon or explosive compound, other than fireworks the possession of which is regulated by Chapter 10 of Title 25.

There is no such thing as this. Your car is not an extension of your home in Georgia.
Well not for carrying a gun anyway.

However one defense for use of Lethal Force is "defense of habitation" which includes your home, business and car.

Whoa whoa whoa, I never said I was "smart enough". I don't think it's possible to be "smart enough" to understand it all. If it weren't there, or at least severely limited, no one would have much of a problem. :righton:, GCO.

Here is a hypothetical question. What if you are pulled over for a traffic violation right in front of a school (K-12) or College Campus?

Don't stop, keep driving to another area. Make sure the officer knows your intentions, though.
That's logical, but what would you do under the circumstances that I posted.

Start arguing that you are still in transit even though he made you stop.
any weapon legally kept within a vehicle in transit through a designated school zone
or you are going through the zone to conduct lawful business.
is in the ordinary course transacting lawful business
