And I don't want a person coming into my home to check my gun safe. I flatly wouldn't let them in. I think it might be smart to list what kind of gun safe/gun locker they have.
The pistol magazine is a good point, and I think it's within reason since that 16 or so is not far off from the 10 round limit. The 30 round for rifles just seems excessive though.

Why do you think 30 round magazines should be allowed for rifles and what benefits will it provide to most gun owners?

I think the proof of purchase and proof of installation is a pretty reasonable requirement.

Oh, my bad. I meant to say "there shouldn't be 30 rd magazines"

100 round drum mags are ok though

And I still wouldn't go so far to have the proof of purchase.

10 rounds is just a hassle. Imagine a gas tank 1/3 of what it could possibly hold. Still functions, just annoying to refill so often

not true, because I only suggested blinker fluid, and you didn't even do that.

Inspection is the best way but pretty invasive of privacy, but even just requiring proof of purchase and proper installation would do tons for gun related deaths in my opinion.
If we are talking about guns that are being sold in a shop, they I could agree there could probably be some regulation on how they are displayed or how close they can be to the door, etc.

As far as what people can do in their own home, I'm not sure there's anything realistic that can be done there. I own a gun and I don't have children. I keep my gun loaded and hidden but not locked. The point of the weapon is defense and if it is locked up, I don't want my safety at the mercy of some locking device in the middle of the night.

That said, people with children should be more responsible and I believe there is already a law that states if a child under the age of 18 gets a hold of a weapon because of negligence and harms himself or others, you can be prosecuted for a felony.

Bottom line, California already has a law that all firearms sold must be accompanied with a cable lock so that it can be transported to the owners home legally. It just adds an additional expense on top of the gun most times. You pay for the gun + additional cable lock. If you did the same thing for some kind of container, people would just start bundling the cheapest container that still meets regulation with the guns and it would add to the expense. You still couldn't enforce people to use them. Plus, I don't want someone telling me what I can or can't do in my own home.

I've thought about this quite a bit as well, and I haven't been able to find a way to legally make people responsible for someone ELSE stealing their property and committing a crime with it. And maybe the fact that I'm trying to answer that question is the problem.
