    Yes. You cannot possess a firearm within 1000 feet of a K-12 school (exceptions for private property and locked cases). This is PC 626.9 and it is terrible law. I recommend reading http://www.californiaopencarry.org/C...aOpenCarry.pdf

    Penalty flag - no citation

    If you research it I don't believe you will find this legislated except maybe in thelegislation of a particular county.

    I believe you're referring to 'playgrounds' and 'youth centers' enhancement found in 626.95.

    This enhances penalties to 12025, 12031, and 417 violations under some circumstances.

    Code:
    626.95.  (a) Any person who is in violation of paragraph (2) of
    subdivision (a), or subdivision (b), of Section 417 , or Section
    12025 or 12031, upon the grounds of or within a playground, or a
    public or private youth center during hours in which the facility is
    open for business, classes, or school-related programs, or at any
    time when minors are using the facility, knowing that he or she is on
    or within those grounds, shall be punished by imprisonment in the
    state prison for one, two, or three years, or in a county jail not
    exceeding one year.
    (b) State and local authorities are encouraged to cause signs to
    be posted around playgrounds and youth centers giving warning of
    prohibition of the possession of firearms upon the grounds of or
    within playgrounds or youth centers.
    (c) For purposes of this section, the following definitions shall
    apply:
    (1) "Playground" means any park or recreational area specifically
    designed to be used by children that has play equipment installed,
    including public grounds designed for athletic activities such as
    baseball, football, soccer, or basketball, or any similar facility
    located on public or private school grounds, or on city or county
    parks.
    (2) "Youth center" means any public or private facility that is
    used to host recreational or social activities for minors while
    minors are present.
    (d) It is the Legislature's intent that only an actual conviction
    of a felony of one of the offenses specified in this section would
    subject the person to firearms disabilities under the federal Gun
    Control Act of 1968 (P.L. 90-618; 18 U.S.C. Sec. 921).

    That school zone nonsense needs to be legislated out. On school property if they need to have anything, or maybe 10 feet and not in a vehicle or something...like if you're walking past you might have to cross a street. I'd prefer it to be allowed altogether, but it would at least be a step in the right direction.
