This question is about OCGA 16-11-127.1(d)(1):

If a carrying individual is in transit to make a purchase at Wal-Mart and gets pulled over for speeding in a school safety zone, is he considered to be "in the ordinary course of transacting lawful business"? Could a case be made that, by speeding, he was acting unlawfully, and is therefore not exempt from OCGA 16-11-127.1?

How about if the individual failed to register his vehicle?

Interesting question.

The one time I got pulled over it was next to my college, but I sure as hell was not going to pull into school grounds. I drove a ways down the road so I would not have to be on school property.

Or is my question inconsequential if you have a GFL, based on (c)(7)? To me it says,

"(c) The provisions of this Code section shall not apply to: (7)...any weapon legally kept within a vehicle in transit through a designated school zone by any person other than a student;"


Am I reading this correctly?

I think that regardless of the transit, lawful or unlawful, unlawfull being speeding; it should not matter, as you where in transit, I don't believe the code says anything that would construe speeding as unlawful transit.
