    From an article in the Bay Area Mercury:

    Starting this year, gun buyers must first obtain a Handgun Safety Certificate, which requires them to show proof of residency, show they can handle a gun and pass a written test at the gun dealer. Here are some sample questions from the study guide:

    1 An important lesson that children should learn is that guns are not toys. True or False?

    2 Child safety precautions only apply if you have children. True or False?

    3 The safety on a semiautomatic pistol is not foolproof. True or False?

    4 Safety rule number two is to keep the gun pointed: a) to the north; b) in the safest possible direction; C) up; D) down.

    5 Firearm or ammunition caliber refers to: a) barrel length; b) magazine capacity; c) barrel or bullet diameter; d) bullet velocity.

    6 After ensuring a double-action revolver is pointed in a safe direction and with your finger off the trigger, you begin unloading the handgun by: a) releasing the cylinder latch; b) removing the cylinder; e) swinging out the cylinder; d) pushing the magazine release.

    7 It is important for you to be a positive role model by always practicing the basic gun safety rules and displaying a positive safety attitude all the time. True or False?

    Answers: 1: True; 2: False; 3: True; 4: B; 5: C; 6: A; 7: True

    A lot of Berkley grads will probably have problems passing - too many words strung together and too many answer choices!

    As a PRK Gun Dealer I had to administer and grade the BSFC. Basic Firearms Safety Course. I did thousands of them. The state make the dlr buy the certificates and then collect the fee for the card and the states additional fee. You needed to have a storefront, all the proper licenses and permits, insurance. The dealer then pays for the certificates and what is the state charging additional fees for?? All the hundreds of thousands of BFSC certificates already issued are (I understand) now void and the test has to be retaken: and more importantly the fees paid AGAIN. The original cards were to have no expiration but as everything else in Govt, the rules only apply to the poor citizen, the Govt (Per Olly North)" keeps
    changing the rules, keeps score and answers to no one." I also have heard the test and the certificate might have to renewed annually.
