California Assemblywoman Pushes Firearms “Warning Label”

posted on March 17, 2017

Assemblywoman Catherine Baker is asking California to raise the passing mark “for the issuance of a firearm safety certificate” by 10 percent, and to attach warning labels to all guns sold.

Baker’s legislation would change several firearms laws, and includes a lengthy warning label on gun packaging: “The presence of a firearm in the home can significantly increase the risk of suicide, homicide, and unintentional shootings for household members … California has strict laws pertaining to firearms and you can be fined or imprisoned for failure to comply with them.”

The paragraphs-long label further admonishes: “Children are attracted to and can operate firearms that can cause severe injuries or death … If you keep a loaded firearm where a child obtains and improperly uses it, you may be fined or sent to prison.” 

Baker is the only Republican serving the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Firearms Policy Coalition says her proposed legislation forms a coalition with the “Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence” for more control of guns.
