    PC 626.9 loophole?

    (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).




    Now here is my question. If you get written permission from the district superintendent of the school district where you go through regularly you can carry within 1000' of a school legally? Do you just keep the written permission with you and show it to the stopping LEO?

    IF you get such permission, a copy in your wallet wouldn't hurt.

    My question: How many people have actually written for such permission???

    I tried. I got a call from the sheriff, and no answer from the school super. I doubt if any were ever given out.
    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.

    I don't remember word for word. I asked for a letter persuant to pc 626.9 to pass through all schools in his district. He forwarded it to the local sheriff.

    It's a nice quiet little town east of El Cajon. We only had 3 murders in the 10 yrs that I lived here. One guy killed his grandma cuz she wouldn't give him money for drugs. Happened about 200 yds from where I live.

    First he asked what I was talking about. I directed him to that part of the penal code. Just chatted about why I wanted to carry, and he said that no answer from the school super would mean NO. He didn't seem to have any problem with OC'ing. He didn't warn me or any such thing. He ducked my question about how his deputies handled (e) checks. I even told him where I live. NO FEAR, HERE. I though about asking him over for coffee, but decided not to.

    I sent an email to my local police about me starting to open carry. He was very nice in his response. Now lets hope the super is nice and grants me written permission.

    The superintendent of the school district or his designee has to grant permission. The sheriff cannot unless the superintendent has made the sheriff his designee.

    You can see my adventures in obtaining a 626.9 exception here: http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...-San-Francisco

    To my knowledge, only two other board members have asked for an exemption, neither were granted. One was for a private school (I believe) which actually shares a property line with a gun store.

    I just meant I told the LEO agency I was going to be open carrying. No info given besides my email. Not asking for a GFSZ exemption from the police. I know I have to get that from the super. I just asked the LEO if they new about open carrying and gave them info on it. Guy was nice and said he would pass the info along to other sergeants.
