There Are Laws Regarding Gun Storage. Did You Know That?

San Franciso Bail Bond Store

All kinds of laws surround California gun owners. There are laws for purchasing and selling guns and there are obviously laws for how guns are used. There are even laws for storing guns, which are no less important to know than all of the other laws about guns are. Storage laws are primarily meant to keep children and strangers from accessing the guns and potentially firing them.

In California, it is illegal to store a loaded gun in a place where a child can find and reach it. It is a misdemeanor crime to store a loaded gun in a place where a child can access it, which punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. If the incident escalates to where a person is injured or killed, the owner can be put in jail for a few years and fined $10,000. However, the worst punishment in this situation is the injuries sustained, or the death of an innocent person, because the gun was irresponsibly stored.

If you are a gun owner, be responsible and follow the laws for owning a gun. Do not misuse it and we certainly hope that any serious incidents never occur.
