India’s gun safety courses are coming up short

The Indian government is facing a huge challenge in trying to educate citizens on how to use a firearm responsibly.

According to a report published by the Times of India, Indian officials are struggling to offer gun safety training courses to the public.

The paper said India’s state governments have only offered two such courses in the past four years, with the first being a four-day course last month, and the second being a six-day one last week.

The two courses are not available on mobile phones and internet-connected devices.

The Times of Indian reported that a report by the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH) has found that about a third of people in the country have no access to a gun safety class.

The report, entitled Gun Safety in India: How to Use, Learn and Protect Against Gun Violence, also found that a total of 4,838 people died in the first nine months of this year, compared to 1,890 in the same period last year.

More than 4,000 people died last year in India as a result of gun violence.

The Times of Indians report stated that India’s National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) has estimated that a third or more of the country’s 3.9 million people have no gun safety classes, and only about 500,000 have access to them.

The NIPH report stated there are only 2,200 gun safety officers in the state of Gujarat, and there are around 100 gun safety academies, and a few gun safety colleges.

The report said that there are more than 10,000 firearms registered in India, but only a handful of them are licensed and registered.

There are also about 1,000 police stations across the country, but they do not have enough officers to carry out their duties effectively.
