I have some people telling me that a Notary public is a clerk of the court. If so would I be able to carry in the court house and any where a LEO could carry? Could I carry in Middle Georgia Tech? What does it take to be a Notary Public in Georgia? I know lots of Questions!! :)

only clerks of the "Superior" court?
Why not the State court, too, in counties that have a State court system?

Anyhow, a notary public is not a "clerk" of any court, although they may be called "officers of the court" because they are sworn-in and commissioned by the courts. Once commissioned and holding that office of notary public, they are authorized to administer oaths to witnesses and to people signing a sworn statement.

Here's some useful info on notaries:

Superior Court Clerks are elected constitutional officers.
