You Cannot Leave Your Gun Just Anywhere in Your Home

call-santa-clarita-bail-bonds

Grey’s Anatomy recently aired an episode where a young boy accidentally shot his friend because the two found a gun in the home; the gun belonged to one of the parents. No one ever intended any harm, but the gun was poorly stored at home. This episode prompted us to highlight California’s gun storage laws, laws that donot get enough attention as do other gun-related laws.

California gun owners must keep their firearms locked away in a safe and secure place where others, especially children, cannot get to it. Though it is not a law, but rather a safety measure, gun owners are also encouraged to remove all ammo from the gun. If a loaded gun is kept in an unlocked dresser that any youth or child can access, then the owner is committing criminal storage of a firearm...

New California Smoking Laws You Should Know About

call-palmdale-bail-bonds

It is no secret that cigarette smoking is increasing among teens; not everyone obeys age limit laws. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration are constantly implementing new rules for smokers and the most recent ones focus on manufacturing, labeling and marketing, and not selling to those who are 20 or younger. The new rules apply to smoking cigarettes, cigars, hookahs, and also the more popular and “safer” e-cigarettes.

Everyone is well-educated on the risks of smoking – both for the self and for others passing by who inhale those fumes, which is called second-hand smoke. Despite knowing the health risks, people smoke anyway to relieve stress, to calm down, because of peer pressure, or because it’s “cool.”

The new regulations will take time to be implemented but note that violations can r...

Save Your Summer, Do Not Get Arrested!

call-antelope-valley-bail-bonds

Summer is nearing and for college students, this is the best time of the year. No more lectures, no more all-nighters studying, and no more teachers. It is going to be all parties during the vacation.

However, the fun has to have some boundaries, and the biggest boundary that we are talking about is the law. We get plenty of calls for students who have been arrested for various offenses ranging from drinking and driving, to trespassing and more. We hate receiving these calls because it means you are in serious trouble, and you are a young adult. It is a scary situation, and some college campuses respond much harsher to a student’s offense than other college campuses.

Antelope Valley Bail Bond Store will do their best to make these situations as easy as possible by bailing defendants ou...

Skate Away from the Freeway Challenge

call-palmdale-bail-bonds

Have you heard of the freeway challenge in California? This new challenge that is happening in Los Angeles has skateboarders riding their boards on freeways! Insane to you and us, but apparently less so for these skateboarders.

Usually when the traffic is slow, a skateboarder will get out on the freeway to skate and do some tricks. A friend will be taking a video and then it will be uploaded onto social media with the hashtag, #freewaychallenge. Clearly, this is dangerous for everyone on the road and the CHP is looking to use social media to track down some of these violators, subjecting them to hefty fines.A stunt like this can easily go terribly wrong with people getting injured and arrested.

The two key takeaways from this:

    1) Do not get involved with this challenge...

It Is Time to Grow Up

call-santa-clarita-bail-bonds

Being stupid and careless is a part of growing up. Mom and Dad were always there to pick you up from detention, to wait up as you got home past curfew, and make sure you apologized to your classmate for being a bully, but those days are over. Now that you are an adult, your parents are no longer responsible for you and your actions. They will forever be your Mom and Dad and they will always act like that, but in the eyes of the law, you are an adult.If you get arrested, Mom and Dad may not be there to bail you out. It is up to you to get yourself out of this mess, with or without their help.

Even without your parents’ help, you do not have to be alone. You are encouraged to enlist the help of one of our amazing bail agents here at Santa Clarita Bail Bond Store...
