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


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...

An Example Of A False Report


Not only is it under-whelming, but it’s also very disappointing, that there are still a number of people in prison who have been wrongly convicted of a crime. A person could feasibly be incarcerated right now just because investigators were too lazy, the jury was corrupted, racist, sexist, the technology to test DNA and the evidence was not as precise as they should be, or a number of other circumstances which lead to peoples’ injustices all of the time. This is a sad truth that is unfortunately ever-present in our everyday society, which has to be confronted in one way or another.

Every so often, a wrongly convicted individual is finally released early, after having his or her name cleared. Lake County’s 71-year-old Luther Jones is one of these men.

Jones spent 18 years in prison...

Lying Always Gets You Into Trouble


Lying to the police and making a false report is a crime. Making a mistake by telling the police one thing, then remembering it’s another thing, is different and not considered a crime.

For example, describing the getaway car in a crime that you happened to witness as red in color when you definitely know the car in question was white in color is defined as a lie, and thus, would constitute committing a crime. But if you think the car was blue, and later you remembered that it was in fact green; that would be considered an honest mistake that you would correct with the police whenever you recalled that detail.

If the police approach and question you regarding anything you may have heard or witnessed, don’t panic and just blurt out nonsense, you need to think about what may have happen...

The Weirdest California Laws

  • A male cannot go outside his house if he is not wearing the proper attire.
  • You may not use your own bathroom in Dana Point if the window is open.

Sort Your Bail Bond Payments With Tax Refunds


If you overpaid taxes last year, you have the option of applying the excess amount to this year’s taxes, or have it refunded to you. In deciding which option would be more beneficial to you, consider your current financial situation.

  • Do you plan to make a large purchase sometime soon?
  • Have you been spending more lately than saving?

California To Raise Legal Smoking Age from 18 to 21


In quite the bold move, California lawmakers just recently voted to change the minimum age for smoking from 18 to 21. California is only the second state in the United States to move forward with this change; Hawaii has changed as well.

California is the most populous state in America and such a substantial change could greatly affect the public. Although most smokers start before the legal age limit, even just raising the age limit to 21 will make it more difficult for teens to get a hold of tobacco products.

This would not include the use of e-cigarettes, as currently these increasingly popular devices are not regulated by the federal government; however, there is also a push to change those regulations as well.

Currently underage smokers face relatively low punishment levels because ...

The Big Differences Between Seventeen Year Olds And Eighteen Year Olds


When you’re fifteen and sixteen years old, and you get into trouble with the police, your parents are the ones who have to take responsibility for your actions and end up suffering the consequences for those actions like paying fines. Your allowance may be suspended for a while, but your parents are the ones who will need to sign papers, communicate with the court, and pay money. But once you turn eighteen, you are responsible for yourself. Your parents will not be required to pay off any of your fines (or suffer any other consequences) on your behalf. They may choose to help you, and they just might. . . but they are not obligated by law to do so.

As you can see, anyone seventeen years of age or younger, is considered to be a juvenile...
