We need your help! This petition has been created so that Ashlee’s voice can be heard on Gun Safety! Ashlee lost her life on September 3, 2010 due to her boyfriend’s lack of education and poor judgment call. This Gross Negligance act on his part could have been eliminated with proper "Safety Gun Awareness". This young man received a firearm as a gift from his parents on his 18th birthday without gaining a weapons permits or any type of safety training before he was able to possess this firearm. We can stop this Gross negligant act from happening to another child or a young adult again. We believe the answer is by simply educating and making people aware of gun safety, being taught the appropriate way to store, handle and use a firearm. We are working to pass a new Gun Awareness Law/Amendment that anyone who is under the age of 21 that wants to have the "RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS" should attend a safety course training that educates themselves in the proper use and handling of any firearm (handgun, rifle or shotgun) and gain the appropriate permits allowing them this weapon. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

    I am so sorry for your loss. As a parent of a 21-year-old boy in college, I am, stunned that any parent thinks it's ok to buy their 18-year-old son a GUN for his birthday?! Please do the research: The male brain has an enlarged amygdala (regulates compassion and anger) and undeveloped fontal cortices. This results in bad choices. A course is a step in the right direction, however I do not believe that any boy younger than 25 (when the brain matures) should own a gun, except perhaps under extenuating circumstances. This is so tragic. A friend of mine has a daughter who shot herself in the head because she was DEPRESSED and there was a gun sitting next to her. This is completely out of proportion and sickening. May you find comfort in knowing that your Ashlee's voice has been heard here in California. Blessings.

    This is just common sense! Drivers exams are required, so why not a course, test and required permits for firearms?

    I am all for our right to bear arms but there must be a limit to those rights. If training is the simplest answer without infringing on our inalienable rights I truly believe it is the minimum that should be enacted. Kudos for taking a positive stand.

    It's hard to believe that we even HAVE to have a petition for something like this. This is common sense. Why does it take innocents dying for us to institute safeguards such as these?
