India: "Verdict will make shooting inaccessible"
Days after the Delhi Hgh Court ruled that shooters could no longer use air guns, air pistols and air rifles for target practice without acquiring a proper firearms license, Beijing Olympic gold-medallist in 10m air rifle, Abhinav Bindra, said the judgment could kill the sport in the country. "What about the kids who aspire to be top-notch shooters some day? When I started shooting as a 12-year-old, I could go to a toy shop and pick up an air gun. Please don't tell me you need to have a license to get one now," said Bindra.
