I am so sorry, but this makes me laugh so hard.
There are enough regulations already about owning and buying a gun the legal way. Do you think that the people who use guns for criminal activities follow any of those rules? Do you think they would have a sudden desire to follow the laws if a course was required?

In NY a hunter safety course is mandatory to get a hunting license (which is totally different than getting the gun).
In some counties a handgun safety course is required to get a pistol permit (which you have to have to own a handgun in NY).
