As a gun owner you are legally liable if a minor gains access to your guns. Make sure they are secured and that can't happen. Beyond that if the other parents ask, then tell them the truth, including how you have them secured, etc.
I also live in CA, when my kids were young I had exactly one mother ask about guns when her kids were left with us to care for. She still left her kids with us. (we were the go-to family for when they had an emergency and needed to drop off the kids). Later on I arranged for the County Sheriff to come to the school and do a firearms safety presentation. It was attended by over half of the kids in the school. All of the feedback that I heard afterwards was positive, even from the anti-gun families. My justification was that we live in a rural community and if your kids were to come across a gun they need to know how to be safe. Period. I think all kids should have the same training, based on Eddie Eagle, in school. There is no pro- or anti- gun instruction, just "Stop. Don't touch. Get away. Find an adult." Pretty straightforward.
