The State of California passed a number of new gun laws in 2019 and everybody who knew about them had the same thing to say about them: They are tough.

For instance, in 1989, California became the first state to ban assault weapons after five students died in a shootout at an elementary school in Stockton. To obtain a firearm in California, you must pass a written test and wait 10 days after the sale to get delivery. The state also has a red flag law, which prohibits Possession of firearms by an individual.

Facing the possibility of incarceration or anticipating release from prison can sometimes involve similar issues. This most frequently occurs in two situations: It often happens when a judge does not sentence a defendant to jail time but instead decides that Court ordered supervision is the best public policy decision. The second most common occurrence is when a defendant is released to jail time but passes an evaluation that qualifies him for release from prison using the parole release process.

When an accident occurs, there may be more than one cause. Two, three or even more people can all act in a way that makes an accident more likely to occur. Contributory negligence is the idea that an accident may have multiple causes. Multiple people may face legal liability for an accident, and multiple people may have a legal remedy after an accident. When more than one party is at fault for an accident, the concept of contributory negligence determines how to apportion blame.

California Self Defense Laws

February 5th, 2019 | Written by Bail Bonds Blog

In some states, you have more relaxed self-defense laws, but in the state of California, the use of force is a little stricter. If someone you love has been arrested because of self-defense, you should begin the bonds process as soon as possible. Like some of the other states, California uses a law called Castle Doctrine California, which means that you have a legal right to defend yourself in your home if someone breaks in. However, you shouldn't mistake this for believing that you can use as much force as you want because once the threat has been eliminated, you're not allowed to go any further. California also uses some of the elements of the Stand Your Ground laws in self-defense of the home.
