from my understanding of the law that is correct, However you are also not allowed to handle the firearm while on school property. If for some reason you must exit the vehicle (flat tire, teacher wants to speak, etc, you must exit school property remove weapon from holster (if not already dont) and than you may exit the vehicle. I'm not positive but I dont think you can leave a loaded gun locked in your car while on school property, which means you would have to unload it also (again not positive)

Now in GA the school thing gets kinda funky. Military are exempt from carry laws which encompasses the school thing, but you have to have a state issued permit to be exempt from the federal law (if it still stands) There are other exceptions to the law for standard GWL holders such in picking up or dropping off or leaving it locked in the vehicle. I vote for the "common sense law" that says the 2nd amendment means you have the r.t.c. no matter where you are. Laws are getting WAY too confusing.
