    I live next to an elementary school and work next to a private elementary school. Question is, my house is ok to carry at, i would assume, but inside my business is it ok to carry?

    Check the laws in your specific state to be sure but in general, yes you may do this.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    I am in CA, unfortunately, however it's all sort of fuzzy as to the whole "school zone" thing. I'm sure I'm ok to carry at home on my property, even thought there is a school across the street, I just can't go outside armed, lol. But the main question is at my business, inside the actual building, being that there is a school next door. I would think that inside the building, since it is private property, open carry would be ok. Anyone know the facts?

    Found it! Under Exemptions after 626.9

    From the CalGuns wiki:

    Code:
    626.9.  (a) This section shall be known, and may be cited, as
    the Gun-Free School Zone Act of 1995.
    (b) Any person who possesses a firearm in a place that the
    person knows, or reasonably should know, is a school zone,
    as defined in paragraph (1) of subdivision (e), unless it is
    with the written permission of the school district
    superintendent, his or her designee, or equivalent school
    authority, shall be punished as specified in subdivision (f).
    Here is the EXEMPTION

    Code:
    (c) Subdivision (b)  does not apply to the possession of a
    firearm under any of the following circumstances:
    (1) Within a place of residence or 
    place of business or 
    on private property, 
    if the place of residence, place of business, or private
    property is not part of the school grounds and the possession
    of the firearm is otherwise lawful.
