Make publicly available a document describing proper gun
safety. The four rules and why they're important, the obvious
ways to endanger yourself or your children by not being
careful, attributes of a good gun safe, the URL of a gun range
location list, things like this.
Require a copy to be
printed and presented with every gun
sold. No extra license, no test, just be sure they get a copy.
Existing inspections are more than enough to ensure a good
rate of compliance with minimal public burden. I think this
would save hundreds of lives annually.

||[+] The title made me laugh, but it's a shitty idea
||I think your idea is pretty well baked under existing CA gun laws.
||AZ now, I don't know about.
||If schools are outlawed, only outlaws will have schools.
||You can have my school, when you can pry it from my cold dead hands.
||Chairman Moa: Every communist must understand political power grows out of the barrel of a school.
||This is my rifle, This is my school,
This is for fighting, This is for fools.
||And... John lemon's song: Happiness is a warm school.
||The intercalary was once expeditioning in
Florisbad, and had recruited several bearers from
the local population. So enamoured of him were
they that they presented him with a tame,
orphaned wildebeest on a leash.
||He led that damned thing about with him
throughout the whole expedition, including one
night when he wandered off into the bush and
became lost. He remained lost for the next 3
days, which included two of the coldest nights on
record in that part of the world. When he finally
found his way to a small village at 4am on the
third night, he still had his "pet" on its leash, but
hypothermia had left his hands numb and
immovable. Hoping to make a barter with the
village headman for some food and somewhere to
sleep he said "You can take my gnu, when you can
pry it from my cold, dead hands."
||This idea, as presented, sounds like "include instructions in the
package." What I was picturing was more like the defibrillators that
are being designed for emergency use by layfolk. The device itself
provides use instructions at the time of use...
